Cruisers Against Cancer

This is the 3rd year that my friend Hope and I have put on a fundraiser for 
the Pink Ribbon Society of Grenada.
The first year we used our weekly domino game to solicit donations in 
memory of a fellow cruiser who we lost to this hateful disease. 
Last year we thought why not continue?
This year we thought we can do more.
Still building on the domino game theme we solicited prizes from various 
businesses and added a raffle.  The spirit of giving is alive and well in Grenada.
Almost everyone we asked said yes!

We had gift certificates for restaurants, supermarkets, bike rental,
gym memberships, movie passes, wine, beer, glassware, artwork,
and much, much more.
It was fantastic!

 Jim at the game.
He didn't win, he didn't lose, he had fun!

Our happy first place winner.

I am so happy to say that we raised 2000 ECD which will all go to 
help cancer patients and their families right here in Grenada.
Hope and I have some more ideas for next year so if you're in the area,
how about a game?
