The Christmas Challenge

Bob Parks Realty hosts a "Christmas for the Children" event annually to help impoverished children in the area. Unfortunately, the Christmas for LaVergne and Smyrna children may be cancelled this year because we have been unable to raise adequate funds to pay for it. Many thanks to the blogging community who have stepped up to the plate to help in the fundraising efforts. We need $12,000 at this point. Donations have begun to come in:

As you can see, we have a long way to go. Please come to our "Skate for the Children" night on Tuesday, October 10th at the Smyrna Skate Center. Open 6:30 - 9:00 p.m. Admission is $4 ($2 to go to the Christmas for the Children fund) and skate rental is $2.50. We will have donation buckets at this event if you'd like to give a little more (or a lot more), plus we'll be having a silent auction.

Join us, won't you?!
