We need your help getting the word out. We are sorely in need of a new puppy rescue/food share van. Our current one I fear won’t make it to the Holidays.  Hopefully these shows below can help fill the $22,000 need.  Please mention as frequently as you can.

Enjoy the thrill of the 2011 baseball season once again, with live commentary from World Champion Manager, Tony La Russa, as he takes you through the race to October. Watch while listening to Tony’s comments on the comeback of the St. Louis Cardinals as they go head to head with the Atlanta Braves for the Wild Card. See clips of the history making division playoffs against the Phillies and the Brewers and re-live the excitement of the nail-biting World Series battle between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers. A highlight of the event is the opportunity to personalize the experience through an extended Q & A session!

These are all wonderful events and I’m sure many of my readers will enjoy attending some of them. Good luck in getting the new van so you can continue to go into the community with your fantastic Mobile Adoption and Food Sharing programs.
