Here are some details. On November 14 at 6:30 the PPWC will sponsor a party at Southside Johnny's in Colorado Springs to benefit Katie Hilleke. Tommy Hilleke will be the guest speaker and will present a slideshow of his pictures from past LVM/Tdub expeditions. He is putting this show together specifically for this event.
We are collecting a number of donated gear items for a raffle to be held that night with all proceeds going to Help Katie with her medical bills. While we hope many of you will join us that evening, you can participate in the raffle without being there.
As we complete our list of items we will update the information with a post on this thread. To give an example of some of the things available you can look for a Jackson Kayaks, Sweet Cheeks, a set of JK Happy Feet, Videos from EJ and a special DVD from Penstock productions and many more to come.
To participate, here is what you need to do. Send a check made out to the Katie Hilleke assistance fund, directly to Katie at, 821 bluff creek club rd, Quinton, Al 35130.
Send me an e-mail at email@example.com
and tell me how much you donated and give me your contact information including your address to receive your possible prize.
For each $10 donated you wil get one entry in the raffle. We will post the winners and what they won within one day of the raffle on November 14.
Help us help Katie and maybe win some free gear. Please send a check before November 14 or better yet, join us on the 14th at Southside Johnnys to hear Tommy bring us all close to the action. Since this will be just 2 weeks after the Green Race we'll have a chance to hear some first hand race highlights.
I'd like to acknowledge Hobie's benefit through Dagger. His work on this gave us the idea for a complementary approach. Great job Hobie.
This raffle is possible through the generous support of many Whitewater industry folks. Once we finalize the prizes we will post a complete list and thank all the supporters who make this possible.
