Dinner Event Around the Corner!

By: Jake Marcus
                Hey everybody, I just wanted to give an update on what we’ve been doing the past few weeks as we zone in on the 3rd Annual Team Intestinal Fortitude Dinner Event next Thursday, March 7th.  We have continued to sell tickets and expect a lot of people to be in attendance.  We have also been pushing for continued auction and raffle items, which currently include gift cards, sports tickets, memorabilia, vacations, and many more.  Along the same lines, we have opened up prebidding prior to the event for select items which include concert tickets (Bon Jovi, Taylor Swift, Kenny Chesney), premium Patriots tickets, dinner with Troy Brown, and my personal favorite, a summer clambake with Rob Gronkowski.  Please take a look at these items under the prebidding page of this website for more information and feel free to inform other people who may be interested in bidding/attending.  We have also been brainstorming ideas to make this event even better than past years.
                In other news, the training for Team Challenge New England has started up this past Saturday.  My mother, Carol Augustyniak, will be walking the Chicago Half Marathon this summer and it sounds like her training is going well.  She is up to six miles and has been training on a consistent basis.  I am excited to meet the Team Challenge members as the season transpires and to see my mothers’ progress.
                Also big news, Ashley Klane, who I went to high school with, has made Team Intestinal Fortitude the charity of the month for March.  Klane started an organization at the beginning of the year called “Redefining Rich”, which puts the spotlight on selected charities for a month of the year.  Her blog can be found here: http://abklane.tumblr.com/.  We’re excited that Klane chose our charity after meeting with TIF member, Brian Teague, earlier this week.
                Thank you for reading and be sure to stay tuned to Ashley’s blog and if you haven’t already purchased tickets for the Dinner Event next week, I highly recommend doing so (or if you have any items that you’d like to donate, that’d be great)!
