I received a call at 4:30pm saying it was Teach Me How to Manny t-shirt night at the BD Boys Basketball game vs Watertown game. Apparently, Coach Ladron went and purchased 15 t-shirts for the Varsity players. HOW COOL IS THAT?! The players paired the shirts with green and gold old school warm up pants and it looked pretty sweet! Manny and Eli got to stand with the team as they were announced and during the National Anthem <tears>. The students were wearing the t-shirts, the players, kids, the Beaver Dam Golden Beaver, and even the janitor <tears>. See BD Hoops Pics for some photos from the night!
This morning, we woke up to a hearing aid that was completely dead, for no apparent reason. Finding out it was going to cost $895 to fix in Colorado really made the day start out just super, especially since hopefully he wont need it in a few months. But, to end the day with yet another community support day for Manny's upcoming surgeries wiped out the morning frustration. In the past 24 hours we have sold 100 t-shirts, raising $500. (Thank you BDHS students...and t-shirt lady, Coach Jane!!!) We plan to put in one last order (our 3rd within a week!!!!!!) tomorrow, to get some additional sizes which we ran out of - we want to make sure that anyone who wants one gets one, even if we only sell enough going forward just to break even.
Thanks to BD Hoops and Coach Ladron!!!!
