Hi all !
We are so excited to be with you all next Saturday ! Thank you so much for purchasing tickets, donating , and supporting us in this mission to share love and bring awareness to blood cancers .
Here are some logistics and info for Saturday.
The party will start at 4. The field is located next to the
3051 Payton Rd
There will be signs and balloons at the entrance. We will park as many cars as we can on the grass in front of the field and then will continue parking down the street.
You do NOT need to bring tickets. If you have not bought tickets ahead of time , we will have card readers so you can purchase or donate at the field day if you would like too. But it is not a requirement.
We will also have t-shirts at the event to purchase. You can purchase or make a donation with a credit card, cash, or check.
We will have a place where you can sign your name on a frame or poster , so we can know who all came :)
We do not have a very tight schedule or program.
The hope is for the following to take place around these times but they are not set in stone. Kind of like our cancer journey , we have learned to expect things might not go exactly as planned.
*A representative from Be the Match is coming to speak briefly about the importance of joining the registry. There will a table so you can have a chance to be swabbed and join the registry if you have not had a chance before.
Jambalaya will be ready. As well as BBQ , macaroni and cheese , coleslaw , chips , and dessert.
*Welcome from Heather
*One of our beloved friend and nurse will say a few things briefly about the Bone Marrow Transplant floor at Emory. She has been at Emory since the first transplant done over 30 years ago.
*Mike will introduce Dr. Kota.
*Dr Kota will speak briefly on the research our foundation is supporting.
The rest of the time will be for enjoying each other , food , water balloon toss, and more.
I will add that there will be a dunk tank. If you think you or your children might want to be dunked , you may want to bring a towel or change of clothes.
This is a very casual event. It will probably be hot 🥵, saying our prayers it will cool down some this week 🙏🏽. Many will be coming from the race , from one sweaty event to the next. So wear something cool and casual.
One other thing - We will have chairs and tables but if you have camping /fold up chairs or picnic blankets you may want to bring them.
If you have any other questions please email us this week :)
We can’t wait ! Love you all 🧡
