    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 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.

    If we donate tickets to a game, how is that going to be handled since they haven't been sent out yet?

    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.
