Paypal loot

Hey Keester, I tried to send you some loot via the paypal link on the site and it was returned to me. Any idea what happened?

Keester's picture

2 much @ once.

Hey Wads/all, major apologies on that. I am trying to keep too many balls in the air right now and for some reason the paypal has issues with my benefit's non interest bearing savings account.... I am trying to make it play nice but it is damn hard to get all the right people talking at the same time.....

Sorry to all I have not been around but in order here is the crap I am dealing with right now:

• Cole is turning 1 years old the 27th of this month.

• We found out last week Cole is going to be a big brother sometime directly after Graver's wedding. (ah!)

• My mom just finished up her last round of chemo last week and her lung cancer appears to be obliterated along with her hair much to her dismay.

• I am organizing this hopefully huge benefit.

• I am beginning the workings of Gravers bachelor party. (news and group site forthcoming directly after I get this benefit past me)

So basically I am seconds away from disappearing on a week long bender at any given moment......

good news... I am going to have 2 chilluns under 2 and I am pretty damn happy about that news.... though moments of sheer uncontrollable panic sneak in there at times as well..... ;~)

This benefit has already brought in 50k which was my original "If we make XX amount it will be a win" number... So as long as we get enough people to show at the benefit and cover the cost of putting it on we have done well from my perspective.

Cool crap @ the benefit:(and I doubt we will get full price on most of this)

•4 vacation packages are up for auction.

•Signed smashing pumpkins poster.

•Various sports memorabilia ala Ozzie signed Sox Jersey & Walter Payton signed photo just to name a few

•Robin Williams autographed Robotz poster

•Signed scripts from According to Jim and Days of our Lives (or some other soap not sure which)

•A guest chef for a day experience at Charlie Trotter's

•NASCAR driving school experience that ends with you doing laps on a track in a NASCAR

There will also be hourly split the pot raffles and over 50 gift baskets you can enter raffles for at $5 a chance.


Homemade hand-rolled meatballs
Italian sausage with roasted peppers and potato
Hot and cold pastas
and a bunch of sweets.
pop and water

1-6 Saturday, please try and come if you guys can it should be a good time and you are helping out a truly needed little girl.... She just got back from her make-a-wish foundation trip to disneyworld with her family.

I should be around more when this thing is wrapped sorry for not posting much lately.

raffle tickets

so, are these $20 raffle tickets for the split-the-pot raffle? Also, what the hell does that mean?

Keester's picture

lotsa raffles ; ) Lotsa chaos ;)

well, actually we got a lot going on in the raffle vein of things....

We have the $20 raffle tickets which pay out 2k for a grand prize. You have greater than a 1 in 1500 chance of winning.

We have a $1 a ticket or 6 for $5 raffle we will be selling @ the event with a grand prize of 32 inch flat screeen TV and I think and Ipod mini as a second prize. Chance would be approximately 1 in 1000 of winning.

Split the pot is going to be held hourly at the event. Split the pot works like this. For an hour people will be walking around selling tickets and at the end of the hour we pull a ticket and the winner gets 1/2 of all the money collected that hour. Split the pot.

Then there are the baskets. There are over 50 and they are all valued around $100 give or take and you can buy tickets for $5 and put them in the bucket in front of the basket. There will be a schedule posted for when each basket (and auction) closes and when the time comes we pull tickets and announce winners.

I expect to get the list of baskets and silent auction today so when I do I will post it up here.

getting out there

Alright everyone. What's the plan for getting out to the benefit and who's coming? My initial thought was that we could take the train out there and then take the bus (or walk) that last couple miles to the bar. Getting back depends mostly on how late we end up staying. Any suggestions keester?

Keester's picture


my suggestions would vary depending on how many of you will be making the trip... weather will also play a role in the decisison..... but as of right now the weather appears to be good for Sat.

large group = bus
med or small group = bus/taxi depending on exact numbers and such.

"We should take this acid to keep us awake."

I have some questions

10 Zoom Whitener
wtf is that?

20 "4 Tickets to Brookfield Zoo, a Red wagon, cooler radio, thermos and giant monkey"
does this monkey ride a bicycle or smoke cigarettes?

31 2 tickets to Wicked on Nov.1
32 2 tickets to see Wicked on Nov. 1

Should I assume 31 actually leads you to evil then?

41 2 Gutter People for your Gutters
now that's just plain creepy.

# 56 The Mexican Wino
Serving Tray

2 wine glasses
$20 gift certificate to Pepe's

Why's it gotta be a Mexican???

Keester's picture


10 I am assuming is a tooth whitener or something....

20 Monkey can smoke with the right peer presure applied

31 We have received sponsorship from hell itself the only stipulation was we had to sell a timeshare for a condo there.

41 I thought the same thing.... I dont want bums workignon my house.

56 Dont get Colin started. (Pepe's makes it authentic)

Keester's picture


Guys, I cannot thank you all enough for making the trip down to the south side and supporting my benefit.... I am so glad some of you won stuff to at least hopefully make it somewhat worth it for you. I just wish I could have had some more time to hangout with everyone...

So this is still a preliminary number but I heard yesterday that it look like we brought in somewhere between 40-45k on Sat and we had 50-55k right before the event so that means we are somewhere between $90,000-$100,000 and you guys helped to make that happen.
