I also received an email tonight about a benefit ham dinner fundraiser planned for Jaxson. This is exactly like the one they did for Claire 2 years ago. I am so happy to be able to actually help and give back this time and to work with the same groups of people and communities that worked so hard for Claire. So here are the details I have so far:

WALK-INS WELCOME AS LONG AS THE FOOD HOLDS OUT
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO DRIVE AND DONATE POUND CAKES
If you have any questions, you can always ask me. If I don't know, I can find out. If you need tickets, let me know too. If you want to donate pound cakes and can't make it out that day, let me know and I can arrange to get them from you. If you are interested in getting a plate, I suggest buying a ticket ahead of time. From experience with Claire's benefit dinner, the food ran out right before supper time and people who had tickets came first before walk ins. And even then, some people with tickets who came later in the evening didn't get plates. So buy tickets ahead of time and be sure to get your plate early! They try really hard to estimate how much food to prepare based on ticket sales and estimating walk ins. It's a hard job to figure on walk ins.
Anyways, as I find out more details, I will post them here!
