Emails like the one that came from our favorite Indianapolis Colt last week are the kind I like to open again and again.
“Good news!” Ryan Diem
wrote to me after the Second Annual Cheers for Charity
event at TwoDEEP Brew
ing Company in Indianapolis. “We raised over $15K for CNCF! Not bad for one night of fun...” (as seen in the photo by Chris Bucher above; Ryan is in the center back of the group).
I can’t stop smiling. When so many of us are grasping for good news in the fight against neuroblastoma, Ryan, his fans and our friends pulled together for a night of craft beer and good cheer for our shared cause. Thank you to Ryan and the NFL Alumni Association Indy Chapter
, thank you to TwoDEEP, and thank you to everyone who attended on Oct. 8 for raising a pint and raising hope for our young warriors and their families.
Thank you too, to all of those who bought tickets for the raffle that Ryan and NFL Alumni put together. Congratulations to grand prize winner Rich Rodriguez and one lucky guest for being on their way, airfare and hotel paid, to Super Bowl 50 in the Bay. We’ll be cheering from here.
Second prize of $1,000 goes to Bernadette Cieslak; and third place winner Kelly Trimarco is $500 richer.
Let’s keep fighting the good fight with fun, whenever we can!
Hope unites us,
