Jail & Bail

September 23, 2008

Our Piedmont Credit Union doesn’t need to be bailed out … but Dan sure does!  I’m going to jail this morning… For Good.  It’s a fundraiser for Jerry’s Kids and MDA.  I have to raise enough money to ‘bail’ myself out.  If you are so inclined as to help out these great causes, Jerry’s Kids & MDA (not Dan), then visit this link here.

Yea!!! My mom just made a donation, thanks Mom!!! (p.s. send more money)


Wrap-up of the 3rd Annual Lego Build-Off

August 7, 2008

The 3rd Annual MDA Lego Build-Off was again a huge success raising over $5,000 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association!  Everyone had a good time racing lego cars, building lego towers, and marveling at the many complex lego creations on display.  Brian Korte of Brickworkz.com showed off some of his latest lego portaits.

Here’s a little something I took away from the event…

…A new avatar!  Russ Liberty made visitors “Look Like a Lego!” He had a long line even after the Build-Off was over.
