October Fun!

Hello Everyone! We’ve got some news and updates on ways to help the house this month. But first! A last minute call for Volunteers!  (Again there’s a TL;DR at the bottom.)

Family Day

This is super last minute, but if you are available tomorrow the house could still use volunteers for Family day at Gulfstream, October 10th from 8:30am to about 3:30pm. When you volunteer you are "hired" by Jim n Nicks to serve families and friends of Gulfstream. For each volunteer, the RMHC gets a$100 donation. Last year they raised $9000.

If you can help out, call (912) 350-7641 or email volunteer@rmhccoastalempire.org.

Pumpkin Decorating

The House is planning a Pumpkin Decoration Night for the families, but needs pumpkins. If you would like to donate a pumpkin or money towards purchasing some, please email Meghan Carr meghan@rmhccoastalempire.org or call 912 350 7641.
 
There will be more details about this particular bit of fun in a few days. Let’s just say your Board is making plans….

Wine and Fries 

Our signature event is getting ever closer, and have we got a deal for you! Red Shoe Society Members can get tickets to Wine and Fries for just $15 until November 1st.

Games and Grub

Speaking of the Family Meal Program we had a fantastic night, with some pretty jazzy prizes at Games and Grub last week. We started with an everyday meal of nuggets, mashed potatoes and green beans. Then we rolled out the bingo ball tumbler and commenced the game.
 
Donated for prizes were some coveted coupons from McDonalds, golf umbrellas from the Georgia Ports Authority, restaurant gift cards and an infuser tumbler from WTOC, and a movie night gift pack from your Red Shoe Board.
 
As the families ate we called out the numbers. It turns out those ball cages are harder to work than they look, but we managed.  Strangely, everyone who played won something. Must have been luck in the air.
 
You can check out some of the pictures from the night on our Facebook and Instagram. Also, a special thanks to Gretchen Pearce for donating the equipment.
