Once more unto the breach, dear friends

Over the years, I've used this blog to chronicle my own personal efforts to fight cancer. I've tried to have some fun and hopefully entertain with these exploits but it's not without losing focus on the big issue, which is lending support to those fighting the monstrous disease itself. Whether it's people with it, their families and friends or buffoons like me, I feel like we're on the same team, using the weapons at our disposal. My weapon of choice is fun.

It's been a while since I've campaigned for a muffin to be named after me and even longer since I've been the captain of a Relay For Life team but the battle rages on, unfortunately. Un-unfortunately, I've been invited to participate in an event that will once again use fun as a weapon.

Saturday evening, I'll be hosting a fundraising event at Side Splitters here in Tampa that will benefit Relay For Life in East Tampa.
 It's only $10, with the proceeds benefiting the cause. Plus (and these are some pretty sweet pluses), you'll have a chance to win tickets to see Katt Williams at the USF Sun Dome later the same night. Also, somebody is going to walk away with a hockey stick autographed by Steven Stamkos.

Saturday, February 6
6:00 PM (cocktails and reception at 4:30)
12938 N. Dale Mabry, Tampa

Come. Laugh. Fight cancer.

PS: It's my birthday. That's not what the event is about but that's a fact.
