RESCU RALLY is this Saturday!Mon, April 28, 2008 - 6:02 PM
do any of these phrases sound odd to you? then let me explain:
WHAT IS RESCU? (from their website~ www.rescufoundation.com):
"The RESCU Foundation is a non-profit organization established to promote and maintain the health and medical well-being of the participants of Renaissance Faires, historical performances and other artistic events through financial assistance, education, advocacy, and preventative programs."
WHAT IS 'MR. REN FAIRE'?:
it is a good fun competition between certain Faire personalities to gather support in the form of donations. The contestant with the most money to hand over at 10 PM on Sunday is declared Mr Ren Faire and gets the privilege of carrying the golden turkey leg (a high honor!).
I will be accepting donations toward my chances all week (paypal info below) and all day Saturday. I am also accepting suggestions as to what my performance/act should be on Saturday night at the rally.
Please allow me to be the channel with which you donate money to this fantastic cause that has helped and is helping many members of my family that is the Faire community. But, If not through me, then through the Mr. Ren Faire contestant of your choice. It is more important to me that you give, than that you give to me!
The details from the Foundation:
