Hey Ravens fans! We’ll be hanging out with Dennis Pitta tonight as the next stop of our #JennStrong tour takes us to Padonia Ale House at 8PM. We’ll talk football with Dennis and catch up on his offseason while representatives from There Goes My Hero will be on site as we continue our goal of swabbing as many people as humanly possible! It only takes 30 seconds to swab and potentially save somebody’s life, and we hope to see all of you at Padonia Ale House tonight.
We’re asking for at least a $10 donation tonight if you want an autograph from Dennis. All proceeds will go directly to There Goes My Hero as they work towards their goal of finding a match for every single person in need of a bone marrow transplant. If you want a picture with Dennis, we ask that you get swabbed and show us your “receipt” at the end of the night, as all swabbers will line up after the show for quick, individual pictures with the Ravens tight end.
So far, as we head into the third event of our #JennStrong series (with more dates to be announced in the coming days), we’ve donated $3500 to There Goes My Hero and we’ve swabbed 60 people. Our goal is to more than double that number tonight, so we need your help! Thanks to Todd Heap and Eugene Monroe (both of who are now on the bone marrow transplant donor list) for coming out so far, and we’re looking forward to a great time with #88 tonight!
Special thanks to our longtime sponsor and friend Carl Delmont and the folks at Freedmont Mortgage for their continued sponsorship, friendship, and support. Without people like Carl, WNST wouldn’t exist as we know it today. Thanks to the folks at KELLY and 1st Mariner Bank for their support of these special #JennStrong events! Marc Loundas, Debi Fowler, and the rest of the Padonia Ale House crew have been awesome throughout the planning process for tonight’s event, and we thank them for their support and for being a part of the WNST family.
Last but not last, the hard-working crew of There Goes My Hero have been a blast to work with as they continue their tireless mission set forth by Erik Sauer, a leukemia survivor who is an inspiration to us all. You’ll learn more about him and his journey tonight at Padonia Ale House. See you there!
