Have you ever felt like plunging into a gigantic pool of gelatin?
Come on, we know you have – and if you really haven’t, then you’d probably love to see some other people do it, wouldn’t you?!
How about some famous people plunging into gelatin — like some Politicians? Sports Stars? What about your favorite Tampa Bay weatherman… or an icon in local business!
Not only can you see them do it – - you can join them and do it too!
HOW IT WORKS:
1- INDIVIDUAL or TEAM?
You can register as an INDIVIDUAL and take the gelatin plunge by yourself, or if you need moral support, you can register as a cool TEAM and take the plunge with a group of friends.
2- Just CLICK HERE TO REGISTER & CREATE YOUR FREE FUNDRAISER page! It takes just one minute. We promise! And once you register, your details will become part of THE LEADERBOARD (bottom of this page)
3- Each Gelatin Plunger (participant) must raise $500 in order to take the plunge on June 15th. (So a team of 5 must EACH raise $500, etc.)
4- But wait! There's more! Why pay the $500 yourself – instead, solicit pledges to meet or exceed your $500 goal. You have like a bajillion facebook friends, and twitter followers, right? Now's the time to put that social network to social good! Ask everyone you know to sponsor you by donating just a few bucks. After all, who wouldn't pay to see you plunge into a pool of blue gelatin? You'll be amazed how quickly your coffers fill to meet the $500 plunge buy-in!
5- Once you've raised at least $500, you're golden! We'll see you at the event! Join us at Ribit's Bar-B-Que on Saturday, June 15th. Be sure your swimsuit is on and your friends' cameras are at the ready, 'cuz this is gonna be a blast!

The 5th Annual Caspers Company Sporting Clays Challenge hit a perfect bullseye this year at Tampa Bay Sporting Clays shooting course in Land O' Lakes!
The event has continued to grow significantly each year, and for their 5th event the Sporting Clays Committee raised nearly $27,000 for the Children's Cancer Center.

On January 13th, two local groups - Tampa Bay Tapped and Running for Brews – partnered to host 'The Amazing Pub Crawl' in downtown St. Petersburg.
Not only was the crawl a great event and hugely popular, but the amount of money raised for the Children's Cancer Center set a record as the highest amount of funds both organizations have raised for a local charity to date!
Well done teams! We'll crawl with you anytime!
For the second year in a row, young philanthropist Gianna leveraged her birthday party to raise funds for the Children's Cancer Center!
A year ago, Gianna had heard that a fellow student in her school, Trinity School For Children, was battling childhood cancer and she wanted to do something to help.
Gianna asks that in lieu of presents, all guests make a donation to the Children's Cancer Center.
This year she raised $610, making her two year total nearly $1400!!!
Gianna is a wonderful role model and we thank her – and all her birtdhay guests – for caring so much for their fellow students and our families!
Now here's a story with some muscle…!
As well as the biggest muscles we've ever seen, our very good friends, Dan & Nicole Long of Kill Mode Training, also have the biggest hearts!
Last week, Dan made one of his periodic visits to the CCC. And with the big guy? An equally big check for $1300.
I guess you can say it's just how they roll….
The donation was raised at a recent holiday party that Dan & his lovely wife Nicole threw for family, friends and colleagues.
THANK YOU KILL MODE! It just goes to prove that with a healthy body comes a healthy soul.
