Bring your coats to Adams Jeep and meet Justin Forsett!

Posted on 12 December 2014 by WNST Staff

We’re right in the midst of our annual coat drive, this year benefitting the unbelievable mission of Goodwill Industries. Our next event in which YOU can bring your coats or other winter apparel to benefit our drive is this coming Tuesday, December 16th, at 7:30PM at Adams Jeep of Aberdeen. We’ll be hanging out with Ravens RB Justin Forsett. As you know, this is Justin’s first year in Baltimore and we can’t wait for him to experience the purple love that we know you’ll show him as the Ravens head down the most important stretch of the season.

Instead of charging to come to the show or for an autograph, all we’re asking you is to bring a coat in order to meet Justin and get his autograph. The folks at Adams Jeep have listed the event on eventbrite.com, and the “tickets” are limited as there is a very high demand. If you have been able to secure a ticket, simply bring your ticket along with at least one piece of winter clothing for Goodwill. (Note: We would love for you to bring more than one piece of winter clothing, but we can only guarantee one autograph per person, regardless of how many items you bring given the time restraint and the fact that we need to have Justin out of Adams Jeep in time for their game in Houston on Sunday, December 21st).

If you have not been able to secure a ticket, we would still love for you to come out and hang out at the show, help our cause, get swabbed courtesy of There Goes My Hero if you haven’t already, and PERHAPS there will be time at the end to say hello to Justin. We just can’t guarantee it as these events have been known to get a bit crazy given the passionate purple fans here in Baltimore, and we don’t want anyone to leave with a bad experience. This is a night of purple fun, holiday spirit and giving, and an overall celebration of what Ravens fans are all about! So we hope to see you out at Adams Jeep on Tuesday with coats in hand!

As always, thanks to our presenting sponsor Carl Delmont & Freedmont Mortgage for their continued support. Don’t make a 30 year mistake by choosing the wrong lender. Call Freedmont Mortgage! Also thanks to our good friends at Royal Farms or being a part of this event, as well as Enoch Office, Rugenix, and UMBC. Thanks to Goodwill for being such an awesome organization and partner of WNST and we can’t wait for another huge Goodwill truck to pull up to the WNST studios to pick up this year’s batch of clothing from our coat drive! And it goes without saying that if you need an awesome jeep and are looking for a car buying experience like none other, with a staff that makes YOU feel like part of THEIR family, you better check in with the people at Adams Jeep of Aberdeen. They can do things to your next jeep that you never even knew were possible. Trust us!

Last but certainly not least, as mentioned above, There Goes My Hero will be in the house once again adding people to the bone marrow registry. We’ve swabbed 100 new people over the past week at Greenmount Station & Buffalo Wild Wings Bel Air. Our goal is to match that number in one night on Tuesday night at Adams Jeep. Click here for more info on the swabbing process and requirements.

Thanks to all of you for continuing support everything we do in the community at WNST. If you all didn’t continue to show up and support our sponsors, events, and charity initiatives, we wouldn’t be here. We appreciate each and every one of you during this holiday season, and we can’t wait for you to join us in 2015. We’re dreaming big and we hope you’ll join us along the way!

WNST & Sport Clips team up for #JennStrong to beat leukemia

Posted on 04 April 2014 by Nestor Aparicio

Thanks to the many folks who’ve reached to us to support my wife, Jennifer Aparicio, in her battle with leukemia. Over the past two weeks we’ve known her hair was going to fall out from the chemotherapy and I shaved most of my hair on the first morning after her diagnosis two weeks ago.

I’ve received many notes, texts and seen social media statuses regarding other folks wanting to join me in my solidarity with my wife, who had her hair shaved off last night at Johns Hopkins. She looks great and is battling the normal side effects of her cancer treatment but we remain #JennStrong & #BmorePositive for a cure and a happy ending.

In the meantime, we’re trying to raise money for a great group of folks at a local organization for leukemia victims, called www.theregoesmyhero.org. My new friend (and angel) Erik Sauer is a leukemia survivor from Bel Air who founded the group after receiving a life-saving bone marrow transplant from a 19-year old girl in Germany in 2008. It will become our mission over the next few months to help him fund his foundation but more importantly to get many folks to become bone marrow donors as we get some WNST events together later in April and into early May. We’ll have a lot more details coming over the next two weeks about ways you can help.

In the meantime, for those who want to shave their heads in support of #JennStrong, we’re offering you this great chance to stop by any of the 18 participating Sport Clips in the Baltimore  area and tell them you want your head shaved for leukemia. (They will either use a No. 1 or No. 2 cutter…they do NOT use razor because of safety issues!)

We’re requesting a $10 minimum donation to the organization and we’d love if you tagged your new “cue ball” hairstyle on Facebook, Twitter and beyond with #JennStrong and #BmorePositive. The money goes to There Goes My Hero for funding and bone marrow transplant love.

This offer begins on Saturday, April 5th and extends through next Friday, April 11th.

I’ll be having my head shaved on Monday at 6:30 p.m. at the Fullerton location (7964 Bel Air Road) just outside the beltway. You’re welcome to join me or go to any Sport Clips location near you at your convenience and simply share the picture on social media. We will retweet and share all photos in solidarity for #JennStrong and all leukemia patients and their families.

Thanks for all of the support and love for our mission to find a cure for Jenn.

The last 15 days have been a hard, humbling yet immensely rewarding period for us. Your love, words and offers keep our energy and spirits high.

And here’s more on There Goes My Hero:

 

Appreciate you…

Spending an evening with WNST and Joe Flacco

Posted on 05 November 2013 by Nestor Aparicio

On Monday night, Joe Flacco joined friends of WNST and The Living Classrooms Foundation at The Prime Rib in Anne Arundel County for conversation and charity.

The videos here feature a wide-ranging Q&A and a lot of laughs. Hope you enjoy “An Evening With Joe Flacco.”
