Stepping It Up...Can I Do It?

I came up with an idea to help raise some money for our friend who's husband passed away in his sleep. Basketball season is approaching and Mike Burk was a coach for Pacific Coast Hoops League. I thought maybe we could do a pot luck style luncheon/Opening Day. Everyone bring something and then charge $5.00 a plate, with all the proceeds benefitting the Burk family. I mentioned it to my husband and asked him to tell Kandie (the person in charge of the league) and see what she thought.

Well, I guess she liked the idea and wanted to have a meeting about it. When we showed up, she said, "Thank you so much...I don't know how you want to work it but I have the high school cafeteria available in two weeks." She handed me the list of the entire league and asked if I could let everyone know. So, I guess my idea was a hit!LOL!

I'm really trying to step it up and do things to help other people...but I'm used to being the idea girl/helper...not the person in charge. So here I go getting stretched again. It's funny how whenever you pray for God to use you...he REALLY answers your prayers! So I have a week and a half to make flyers, contact an entire league, interview Mike's wife Karen (get more specific info, stories and pictures of Mike) for the newspaper article I need to write and submit to be published in time to let the public know about the event.

I'm in charge....hahaha...this should be interesting!! Wish me luck!!
