Bob, are there plans to have an auction with proceeds going to Wounded Warriors? For those that were not at last years BamaGanza Roger Forbes donated a FROG hat and I believe there was some items donated by the vendors also. If you have the figures from last year please post it for us.

My reason for asking is I purchased this item specifically for an auction. DW would love to keep it and I denied her request in fear of retaliation but anyway here it is. Maybe some of the other attendees would have a FROG related treasure the would like to donate for the auction.

We will have a auction for a good cause but not for Wounded Warriors. They have had some extremely bad press over the past several months and I can no longer support them. Anne-Marie and I were thinking about a local shelter for battered women though.

That would be fine, as long as it is not a charity that spends all of its resources for administration and big salaries like the Red Cross. I would suggest the Salvation Army (although they have ample funds), VFW and others that use the money for what the charity is supposed to do with it.

BooBoo -


I agree. I was very disappointed when Wounded Warrior Project was Outted I am normally VERY careful with my donations and WWP expose cut me to the core.


Local battered women/children shelters usually operate on a shoestring budget - I will make sure the one we pick puts all their $$$ toward the woman and children.
