It’s a big weekend for us here at General Sarge HQ as we are preparing for a November fundraiser where we will hold auctions for teddy bears signed by various people from the NASCAR community. I’m spending the weekend at Watkins Glen International where I will meet a number of drivers who will sign the bears which we will then auction.
Our first stop was the MRN trailer! The Motor Racing Network – The Voice of NASCAR!
This morning we dropped MRN Sarge off which will be signed by the announcers and others from MRN. A big “Two paws up” to Cheryl Knight who’s the Director of Affiliates with MRN for helping us with getting the bear signed. Here’s Cheryl with Barney Hall – the main booth announcer for MRN – getting ready to pass the bear around for autographs.
A Fundraiser For Tribute Bears
Throughout the weekend we will have a number of bears signed by NASCAR drivers too. We are really excited about this as the bears will be auctioned in November to help raise money so we can deploy teddy bears to the children and families of anyone who loses a loved one as part of my human-owners Brigade currently deployed to Afghanistan from Fort Lewis, WA.
A special thanks to Betsy Mayer here at Watkins Glen for helping us pull all this together too. Be watching through the weekend for more information and pics!
