Default Anyone in Florida interested in volunteering?

I have been in contact with the Make a Wish fountadation. I contacted them a while back to offer powerboat rides to the children. We are going to try to set up rides for December. If anyone is intersted in participating please let me know. These are terminelly ill kids that want to go for a powerboat ride. When it's confirmed, I was thinking of to having shirts made with the boats names on them for the kidsas souviners. This will take place in Miami. I'm sure we'll be able to put a few boats together. I'm sure the kids will get a lot out of this but I think we may be the ones getting the real gift.
Thank you

Gino,

Lets talk this week at the KW Poker Run. We have been in contact wtih Melissa Venditti the special events coordinator for MAW about a combined event. We wanted to do rides and raise money for them. If we combine our efforts we could have a great event here in Miami..

With your luck? Heck no!!! Just playing... I'd love to help, but I'm just an old Kentucky hillbilly. Sounds like a great idea and good luck with it.

Depending on what happens to my boat for the KW PR, if not finished, and is the first week of Dec, count me in. Jeff

Gino, I'd love to help out. If any of the kids are in the Tampa-St.Pete-Clearwater or Sarasota area and want to ride on a triple engine Fountain center console let me know. I do not have a trailer nor a truck big enough to pull the boat though to Ft. Lauderdale area.
