Scored a Great GOAL

Last night Millbrook High School held a fundraiser for Sarah and I, and for Ubuntu Sports Outreach. They hosted Garner High School in their first football game of the year. They designated this football game and the soccer game against Wakefield on Sept. 9 as GOAL events (GOAL= Giving Others Access to Life). There was even a note in the News & Observer on Friday about the game. Check the link out there, scroll down a bit:
Several things happened at the game. We had a tent where we had our shirts and bracelets for sale. We were there prepared to share with folks about what we are going to do. Chick-fil-a donated the money from all of the sandwich sales from the game. And, incredibly, we raffled off some serious prizes donated by Best Buy on Capital Blvd (and one item from the Garner Best Buy). Best Buy was so generous as they gave us a 32" LCD TV, a Nintendo Wii, a digital camera, and an ipod. Chick-fil-a also gave us Chick-fil-a for a Year!. We are saving the ipod for the soccer game on Sept. 9, but we raffled off all the other prizes last night. We raised over $1,300 from the sale of the raffle tickets. Here are a few of the winners of the prizes.

It was such an incredible night. We are so privileged and humbled to be connected with a school that has valued our investment in it and now is doing it's part to support our journey. We'd especially like to think the Booster Club at MHS, the administration, Chick-fil-a @ Falls Village, and Best Buy on Capital Blvd. We couldn't have done it without you!
