Were up to the challenge...I think.
The San Jose Giants have nominated Sam and Lissa to take part in Thursday nights Ice Bucket Challenge. Was wondering when someone would finally ask us and believe it or not they're the first so of course we said yes.
Whoever could have guessed that this Ice Challenge to benefit ALS would last so long and raise so much money to fight Lou Gehrig's Disease. The donations are almost up to $16 million dollars....
We were hoping the Mrs. Doubtfire Face to help the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention would catch on as well, but somehow it didn't. I guess it's all about timing!! But we sure did love
putting our face in a butter cream frosting cake last week in honor of Robin Williams. That was such a great refrigerator scene from the movie with Robin as Mrs. Doubtfire peeking out ...her/his face covered in cream and saying “Hello”.
But next for us is the ice!!! Come out to the game Thursday. The San Jose Giants are starting their final homestand of the season at Municipal Stadium.....where did this season go? The team is hosting an auction and you can bid on the chance to pour a bucket of ice not on Sam and Lissa but on your favorite player following the final out. Hopefully every player will get a bid...and not to be left out is Gigante who will also take the Ice Bucket Challenge. All the money raised that night will go to the San Jose-based ALC Emergency Treatment Fund.
Get there though before the game starts at 7...Gates open at 6...and we'll be taking the Ice Bucket Challenge about 6:45 or so. Not many chances to see Sam and Lissa get drenched!!! Should be great fun!!!
