It’s now 2 days after the 2011 Season Kickoff and I am still amazed at how awesome the event turned out. Close to 200 people and $880 raised for Miles for MJ. Of course, 3 points and a clean sheet isn’t so bad either. We would like to thank a few people who made this event possible.
Marty, Kristina, and Hannah Whalen… These individuals came early, set-up and are responsible for getting a large majority of the items we raffled off (with the help of a guy named Sheanon Williams). They are better known as Team MILES4MJ!
Mark Jenkinson – He was responsible for the designing of the “Defend The Corners” shirts, as well as, donating 10 to be raffled off. He has worked on a number of designs for The Tammany Saints, The IllegitimateS, & the Sons of Ben!
Section133’s very own Hillary Beasley and Amy Savanick – Hillary did a FANTASTIC job selling raffle tickets and Amy stood guard at the raffle tables to make sure everything stayed organized.
Kildares in Manayunk – They provided awesome drink specials and even donated over $200 in raffle prizes. We look forward to DOOP’n there for all UNION Away Game… Ones we don’t travel too that is! DOOP! DOOP! DOOP!
P.S. Don’t forget about the Miles4MJ 5K and 1 Miles Fun Run on April 23rd… The Union are AWAY at Real Salt Lake that weekend so you have plenty of time to RUN for a good cause and still catch the Union. C’mon the U!
