    Hi everyone. Every year for the past three years I have held a raffle to raise money for my family walk to fight ALS. I went to the Hunahpu release yesterday and won’t be keeping my bottles for myself. Yesterday morning my wife and children walked in the Greater Tampa Bay Walk to Defeat ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease). If you don’t know what ALS is you are fortunate that it hasn’t touched your life. It’s a death sentence.

    To raise money I am raffling off my Hunahpu’s to people who donate to our walk. For every $10 you get an entry into the raffle. If you donate $30 you get 3 entries. If only 1 person donates, they get a Hunahpu. If I raise $100, for every additional $100 raised I add another Hunahpu. So let’s say I get $250 in donations, I raffle 3 Hunahpu’s.

    All of the money goes directly to the ALS association via my donation page on their website which is here:http://web.alsa.org/site/TR/Walks/Florida?px=2973903&pg=personal&fr_id=8863

    Please put your BA name in the message line so I know who you are. I will leave the raffle up until Thursday 3/14/2013 at 6pm EST. Please message me with any questions and thanks for any help in fighting this disease.

    If you have donated in the past, thank you! I will be holding the drawing the weekend of 3/16/13 and I will make a video of the drawing so everyone can see.

    Thanks everyone!
    Matt

    Since this is for a good cause, one which is actually dear to my heart and family, i would like to make a donation. I know its all for a good cause, and would donate even if the beer was not involved, but since it is, and i'm a big ISO for it, if i donate $100 do i get a bottle?

    Matt is a great BA, and this is a great cause. Hunahpu or not I think we can all spare a few bucks.

    I'm still pretty new to BA, but it seems like I'm overwhelmed on a regular basis by the generosity of the members on here!

    I'm glad to be a part of it and be able to help (even if it's not as much as I wish I could) such a great cause!

    Good on you Sendsilk, very cool of you!
