Hello everyone! I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for helping us continue my Uncle’s fundraising efforts for #TeamRosie! We raised the most money out of all the returning teams.
On top of it, when our team received the award, Down in the Southland shared stories of Uncle Randy’s past fundraising efforts and announced that moving forward this award will now be called the “Randy Sassano Memorial Award”! His passion and legacy will live on!
Thank you to everyone who donated, shared and helped make this happen! It means the world to our family. My Uncle would be so proud!
As some of you may know, we lost my Uncle Randy unexpectedly this year. What you may or may not know is he was incredibly passionate about supporting Down in the Southland on behalf of his daughter Rosemary. A few years ago he started Team Rosie to help raise money for their Annual Fundraiser Walk.
This is the last thing he posted on Facebook before he passed away…
I am walking again this year to keep his legacy going strong for my cousin and to help raise money for this wonderful foundation he wholeheartedly believed in!
How can you help?
Donate: Simply make a donation on my fundraising page at https://give.classy.org/nicatnight to support Down in the Southland on behalf of Team Rosie. No amount is too small and every dollar helps us to reach our goal. The process is fast, easy, and secure. I truly appreciate any support you can provide and it will benefit a great cause that means so much to my family!
Share: Help me reach my fundraising goal by sharing this page on social media and emailing it to your connections to help raise awareness!
I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who helped make my booth a success this weekend. This includes my husband Frank and our friends Mike and Ellie who without them I would’ve never been able to vend. See this past week, not only did I have an allergic reaction to something (that caused me to break out in hives), but I also fell and sprained my ankle something fierce. The hives cleared up just in time for the show but the ankle will not be healed for quite some time. I don’t know what I would’ve done without them.
And I also want to thank my friends/family who came out to support me. Our friends Mike and Heather traveled up here to see the show and to support my work as well as all the hard work Frank puts into Frankenhearse (you have no idea how much work it is to wipe down a hearse in the heat for a car show). Heather’s Mom came with them and was not only dressed for the occasion but was ecstatic to meet Svengoolie. It really meant a lot to us that they came out. We were even more thrilled to hear that they had such a good time they want to come back next year.
And last but not least the AWESOME people who visited my booth. If you purchased something I am truly grateful. Not only because I missed a lot of work last week (from being covered in itchy bumps and mangled limbs), but because you liked something that I created and spent your hard earned money to support an artist. It speaks volumes. Please send photos! I would love to add you all to my website showing off what you purchased from my booth! And for those who were not able to afford something but came by to say hi and tell me you love my work, you guys rock too! Just knowing you guys dig what I am masterminding means the world to me.
My nephew Michael is in the band Year 18 and they just booked their first gig. To help them out I designed them a flyer to help them spread the word.
If you live in the area come support the local rock scene! You can contact me for more information on tickets. If you are not familiar with the local rock scene, a piece of advice. Always buy pre-sale tickets from the band. This shows the venue that they can bring a crowd. In turn, this gets the band more shows.
