Purple Super Bowl

Posted by Linda

Are you doing something big for the Super Bowl this Sunday? Ok, if you’re an Arizona Cardinals or Pittsburgh Steelers fan, that was probably a rhetorical question…

 

Confession time: four years ago, I couldn’t even have told you what sport the Super Bowl was. And honestly, I didn’t care either. But then I moved here (yes, I do have an excuse – ask me anything about soccer). I’ve gotten a crash course in all things American and will enjoy a good Super Bowl party with the best of them.

 

Last year, we were invited to my friend Peggy’s house. From the decorations to the food and drinks, she’d really gone all out. I remember I made spinach dip and was kind of embarrassed to even put it down. This affair was catered at a whole different level!

 

She had a Super Bowl pool as well. Feeling lucky, we picked 4 boxes at $40 and left with $120 which wasn’t bad at all. Are you doing a pool? Why not make the Super Bowl the official start of your March for Babies season? The easiest thing is a 50/50 split between prizes and donation.

 

After the game, even if your team lost, at least the babies won. What say you… inspired?

I’ll be doing a poker tournament fundraiser a little closer to walk day. I’ve done it for 3 years and last year we had 14 players and raised almost $150 for March for Babies.

I just had a pampered chef party and did a 50/50 drawing. The demonstrator donated 3 Pampered Chef items for our 50/50 raffle. We had about 20 people and 5 people walked away with prizes or money! (We split the 50/50 so 2 people could win.) It was fun and easy to do and we raised over $70 for the March of Dimes!

Just capped out “March of Dimes” fundraiser in long Beach, good to see some supporters working even during their leisure time!
