2015 Shriners Hillbilly Cruise to Benefit Shriners Hospitals
Organized by: terry christie
EVENT DATE Feb 01, 2015
We, members of the Smoky Mountain Hillbilly Clan 24 (A chapter of the International Imperial Order of Hillbilly's, a offshoot organization of the International Shriners),are hosting our 5th Annual Fundraising 2015 Hillbilly Family Cruise, in which all net proceeds will be donated to a specific program or project to benefit one of our Shriners Hospitals for Children. As you know the Shriners Hospitals for Children offers treatment to children for specific medical issues without regard to the family's financial situation or ability to pay for such. Our fundraising Cruise raises money for such donation by events, games and a charity auction we have before and during the Cruise for our guest. The cruise line also donates to our cause for every cabin we book. The economy in recent years has caused our event to have low numbers which directly effects our donation. We are asking for your help in making a donation in any amount you can to the event in order to help us to help the children. If we could get this circulated and seen by thousands and receive just a dollar per viewer that would be amazing. Our Shriners Hospitals operate on donations and as you know times are tough and fundraising is difficult at times as there are so many great causes out there. We own and operate twenty two Hospitals throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. It is very costly to operate our Hospitals as you can imagine. I want to take this opportunity to invite you to attend the Cruise and enjoy the fun with us for a great cause, the Children. We will donate all the net proceeds, as in the years past, to a specific project or program at one of our Shriners Hospitals for Children. The program or project in our opinions that is in the best interest of the Children will be selected. The cruise and activities are very limited in the amount that can be raised from the participants therefore I'm asking you to help us by making any donation that you can afford to make. If we could follow every dollar donated to see how it benefits a child I'm certain we all would work much harder and make a donation. We would also appreciate any item that you could donate for our charity auction as this will also help in the fundraising. Any item donated will sale even if only for a dollar, that's a dollar we wouldn't have without it. Folks we need your help please donate items and or money. Remember we still have cabins available so come join us for fun for a great cause, the children. Our Cruise will be February 1-8 2015 out of Port Canaveral Florida. The Cruise is open to the public, you do not have to be a Mason or Shriner to attend, remember every cabin we can book will help receive more donations from the cruise lines. Please call me if your have any questions or want to book a cabin, Terry at 865-414-7233. Thank you in advance for your help and support.
