The Goods on Tacos for Trey

Having a smoothie! Spring 2007.

For those of you who are coming or are contemplating on coming to the Tacos for Trey fundraiser, below I have included more information on the event. Hopefully it will give you more incentive to come… it’s for a really really good cause (our kid!). We’re raising money (hopefully $24,000) for MPS II research at McMaster University in gene therapy!! The MPS Society is providing half the grant and we will provide the other half. In the raffle, there are gift certificates to: Future Shop, Rona, Starbucks, tickets to the Vancouver Giants, there are gift baskets, among other things, and the BIG TICKET ITEM, as Ry likes to call it, are two flight vouchers from West Jet, which they have so generously donated. In the auction are electronics such as a digital camera, an i Pod, hockey tickets to the Vancouver Canucks and Giants, gift certificates for restaurants such as Bin 941/942, movie passes, jewelry, spa treatments, skis, and a whole bunch of other cool stuff…and I know I will soon get an email from my sister (I love you Mich!) telling me what I’ve missed since she is in charge of the raffle/auction. If you want in on this stuff, arrive before 5:30 as that’s when the draw for the raffle and end of the auction are. Besides the raffle and auction, there will be “Got hope” t-shirts for sale which are pretty great. The t-shirts (kids, youth, women’s and men’s) are by American Apparel, so fit really nicely, and I think they look pretty good too! The tacos should be great, there is a pinata to be bashed around at some point, a mariachi music compilation mix has been made and Ryan’s friend from work, who is apparently well-known for his margaritas, has agreed to make margaritas for the event. And for those of you who opt not to partake in the margaritas, there will be a variety of other drinks, both alcoholic in nature and not, to wet the palate. I’m thinking this will be a great event.
