A great cause / event ...

I follow the "Grady's Allstars" blog (see my blog list this page), which is part of Valerie Grady's web site celebrating the lives of her two boys who have Batten Disease and helping to educate and raise funds for the fight against this degenerative ailment. A while ago, they were highlighted in the media with a story and segment on a local TV station, and one of my fellow bloggers, Amy at Callapitter (also see my blog list - Amy is interesting, big-hearted and courageous), made a number of people aware of the story (and one of the mothers from my kids' school actually did the story as a member of the media). Valerie Grady keeps the community aware of events that will benefit her cause and her boys, and.... there is one coming up that I would like to share with everyone. Here are the details from Valerie:

"The Bethel Park Varsity Hockey team is hosting a benefit game against Meadville on February 27th, 7 p.m. at the Bethel Park Bladerunner's to benefit Grady's All Stars.

Tickets will be sold at the door. Adults - $5, Children 6-11 - $3, Children under 6 free.

This should be a great night for Drew and Trent since they LOVE hockey.

Thanks to everyone for all of your support!"

Please spread the word!!!
