My Dear Friends,
Most of you know that I spend most of the month of March organizing our annual fundraiser for the Hogs For The Cause charity benefitting families with children suffering brain cancers. Many of you have been extraordinarily generous and I thank you for your efforts. What you may not know is that the final piece of our contribution is serving 800 or more helpings of our offerings to the public at the festival. There, ALL PROCEEDS go to the Hogs Foundation for the family grants, this is wonderful but presents a challenge: the expenses to put that part of the event on for us are tremendous. The last three years we’ve been blessed with an increasing amount of corporate sponsorships and donations to help offset our enormous food, supply and planning/bookkeeping costs but thus far not even half of our expenses have been covered. I’ve listed a few items below that if you have the means, I ask you to consider sponsoring our Friday & Saturday service any or all of the items listed below, MEANING YOU’LL DONATE THE DOLLAR AMOUNT NOT THE PRODUCT.
$120.00 – 150 lbs of pre-cut and prepped , french-fried potatoes- Thanks to Jim Thiele for sponsoring this item!
$75.00 – 1 Case fresh parsley – Thanks to ______________ for sponsoring this item!
$150.00 – 2 35 lb container of FryMax cooking oil – Thanks to __________ for sponsoring this item!
$125.00 – 1 Case Boston Butt pork shoulder – Thanks to __________ for sponsoring this item!
$100.00 – 1 Case St Louis style pork ribs –
$100.00 – 1 Case pecan smoked bacon – help
$250.00 – Dry goods for food service – help
$275.00 – One Whole Hog – Thanks to ___________ for sponsoring this item!
$380.00 – Sanitation Services – Thanks to __________ for sponsoring this item!
If you wish to financially support mine and the Death Chefs efforts you can use the cash donation link in the Founders Tradin’ Post or call us at 866-483-3833 or send a check in using an overnight or 2 day delivery service (e-mail me for a shipping label if you need one). We use FedEx and can generate that shipping at a 20% discount because of the quantity of shipping we do with them.
I am happy to promote your assistance by name and send you a 2016 Death Chefs t-shirt, cooking apron or baseball cap!
I sincerely thank you for your time and consideration my friends. This event puts an enormous stress on us every March and then April because we’ve been hesitant to appeal for financial assistance that might detract from the charity/fundraising efforts. I hope our dedication to The Cause is evidence that this appeal is necessary for our ability to dedicate so much time and resources to this Cause.
Pax Domini tecum, et gratia magna
