286 – Operation Giving Back & Toilet Paper Pyramid – Part Four – Wedding Bells??

286 – Operation Giving Back & Toilet Paper Pyramid – Part Four – Wedding Bells??

There are always backstories and sub-plots when you have a big event like this. The big event is Operation Giving Back and Toliet Paper Pyramid
Saturday, April 9th.

Part four is a story about a bet Michelle Baxter has with me. She wants me married off and is
convinced I will find love at the fundraisers on April 9th at the Collierville VFW in Tennessee.
Will Michelle be successful? Or will she come up empty again in the search for love? You will have to
come to the event to find out!

Check out these fundraisers below. Tickets are going fast and there is still time to help.

Operation GivingBack

Is a concert that will benefit the VFW’s Youth Scholarships the goal is to establish
scholarships at the state level that will live perpetually for generations to come.
The concert will have food trucks – drinks and more. The VIP pass will get you into
the Uncle Si dinner on 4/8/2022 and it will also get you into the VIP tent on 4/9/2022.
The backstage pass will get you backstage to talk and interact with the bands.

Operation TP Pyramid
Is a toilet paper drive where we will attempt to collect 45,000 rolls and construct a
pyramid roughly 20′ x 20′ x 20′. All of the toilet paper will then be distributed to facilities
that help those in need across Tennessee such as Alpha Omega. Why toilet paper?
On average toilet paper is $1.00 per roll. By collecting 45,000 rolls we will be able to help facilities
knock a collective $45,000 from their bottom lines. Allowing the facilities to do more for those they help.
