It has been a couple of months since we wrapped up The Molly Surf Celebration. We have been sort of scratching our heads, trying to think up a new and exciting Molly Fund fundraiser, when our good pal Brandon Halberstadt hit us with a great idea just the other day. Molly Moustache-A-Thon!! During the month of November, we’re going to grow moustaches and raise money for The Molly Fund. If you’re stoked on the idea and you want to join the fun, then we would love to see you at Wally’s, in Hampton Beach, on Tuesday November 1st where we’ll meet and kick off the event. Please see the event flier for all of the info and we hope to have a posse on hand at Wally’s on Tuesday so we can rally and continue to raise more moola for The Molly Fund.
I have a good friend and a very good Oakley account located in Plaistow, NH. Michael Gerardi owns MTN DOGS and Michael has been a big supporter of the Molly Fund for the past two years. Each fall Michael hosts a huge bash in which the crew from Meat Head Productions shows up and premieres their latest ski movie. There is a ton of food and beverages, a DJ spins some music, and the snow industry rallies and contributes a ton of product which Michael uses for raffle and silent auction items. Last year, MTN DOGS raised $1000 for The Molly Fund but the good news is that this year the local Wal Mart stepped up and immediately donated $1000 to the Molly Fund so we’re already up a thousand bucks!
The MTN DOGS event this year happened on Saturday October 29th at the American Legion Hall which is located on RT 121 on the Haverhill/Plaistow line. The event not only benefited The Molly Fund but the National MS Society as well.
I think that it’s only fitting that Meg and I share some good news with all of you. Meg is pregnant and it looks like Kieran is going to have a baby brother to boss around at the end of March. Yep, we’re pretty stoked. But as you can probably imagine, when Molly passed away the last thing that we had even remotely considered was having another baby. Our focus was surviving the grief, making sure that Kieran was in a good place, and it’s true that time certainly does help heal some very painful wounds. Meighan wanted to have another child and I, of course, was all in! We will soon be blessed with the birth of our third child, our second son, and Meg will quickly have her hands full with three cowboys tearing up the house. Life happens when you’re busy making other plans….
Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers, and we hope that you will all continue to support The Molly Fund and help us continue to make some magic happen in keeping Molly’s legacy alive. It is truly amazing what the Molly Fund has evolved into; it’s been a blessing to not only our family but also to so many other families that are trying to cope with the nightmare of childhood cancer. Boys, let’s grow some ugly facial hair throughout November and fuel the arsenal! And thanks to those that came out to the MTN DOGS event on Saturday for some “get stoked for snow” fun.
