Hi everyone! For those of you who don't know me, I'm Yankee_in_TX's wife. I'm on the Young Friends Board for CanCare, a local nonprofit that supports cancer patients and their families. I am putting together a Texans silent auction package for our upcoming crawfish boil. Does anyone have anything they would like to donate? I'd love to have an autographed item or two, a couple tickets (preseason is okay!), etc.

CanCare is a local nonprofit that matches cancer patients and their families with volunteers who have gone through a similar type of cancer/treatment. It really helps give people peace of mind when they can talk to someone who has gone through the same thing! Another former cheerleader, Sonya, and I are both on the board. It's a great organization. Check out the website: www.cancare.org

Even if you don't have something to donate, we'd love to have you all come out to our crawfish boil! It's on April 28th at Blanco's on West Alabama. It's always a great time and our biggest fundraiser of the year. Plus, ALL YOU CAN EAT CRAWFISH AND ALL YOU CAN DRINK BEER FOR $25 in advance, $30 at the door. There are sponsorship opportunities, too, if your business wants to get involved. Go to http://www.cancare.org/register-crawfish-boil.asp for details. (If you just want to buy individual tickets, scroll down past all the sponsorship levels and you'll see "Individual Tickets: Select Qty".)

Thanks and GO TEXANS!!! :texflag:

I'm in....let me dig around and see what I have in my Texans goodie stash. And if I am not cooking on that date I may come see y'all.

You had me at "crawfish." lol

I just looked at your site and will do a Silver sponsorship, too. If you will write me and send me an address I will cut you a check.

Sales@TexasGreenDreams.com is the biz that supports my bbq habit.

I bought an XL #23 jersey the other day. It's stitched but is a knockoff I am sure. You can have that if it works for you.

And I can throw in some bbq rub, too. Kinda make it a "tailgate" thing if you think it will help.

Thanks

P.S. I HATE CANCER!!!

Like Lindsay said, even if folks can't help sponsor, it is a SUPER fun event! I think Ted and Kathryn joined us a few years ago....

Live music, and all you can eat and drink....

Sounds like fun and for a good cause. I will see if I can get Ted and Kat there.

What kind of things do you want for the basket? I am sure we can find something to donate.

I have an NFL-regulation helmet signed by Brian Cushing. It was given to me as a gift, and frankly I couldn't care less about it.

You guys are amazing, thank you so much!! All of the items that have been offered sound awesome and will be great additions to the package!

As far as tickets go, if someone would like to donate them, I will coordinate with the winner and you to get everything taken care of once the tickets arrive. It'll be on the honor system, but I trust you guys. :)

For those of you donating items, I'll pm you to work out the details.

Can't wait to see everyone on the 28th! :wesmantexanfan:

I lied.. I have an actual helmet signed by HSNBN that I won in a silent auction at the Intercontinental Hotel for an NFL Quarterbacks Club where they introduced Warren Moon into the club, and this was even before Carr was officially drafted BUT the Texans had already declared that they were going to pick him #1.....

I've held onto it because I thought I would get many other Texans sigs to cover up that $850.00 embarrassment, but alas.... I got nothing.

Hi everyone! I was able to confirm that this is a family-friendly event! Bring your kids of all ages. The beers are self-serve, so obviously don't let anyone underage drink. But everyone is welcome!

Also, I've heard a rumor that there's going to be a special today for $20 tickets (normally $25 in advance or $30 at the door). As soon as I get more info, I'll let y'all know!

HouSportsWriter and BullBlitz, did y'all get my PMs?

Scroll down past the sponsorship info to where it says "Individual Tickets/Select Qty." It still says $25, but if you buy today, your credit card will only be charged $20. Can't wait to see everyone!!

The tickets were bundled together wit a football, an expansion USA Today newspaper and a AF jersey. It went for a total $350.00 if I remember correctly.

Erm, appreciate the info, but I was really asking for the who/where/how info. Meaning, I need to know if they're going to be electronic or physical, and I need the appropriate contact info for whichever type of delivery is chosen (email address for electronic; name/address/phone number for physical).

Linsday aka Lil'Red and Ryan, I apologize so much!! Gibbs and I made it by Blancos but very, very late...... The entire event was over before we got there as given by ALL 5 customers left in the joint.

Again, I'm sorry!! Y'all know me and that I have no problem showing or donating to good causes. In fact, I'm pretty sure that I logged onto http://www.cancare.org/ and donated the same amount of what two tickets to the event would've cost...... (had we showed up on time).
