The Road Less Traveled

Commentary By Erin Baumann

Congratulations to Tracy Rutter for another successful year raising money for Locks of Love and St. Baldrick's. Kutting for a Kause raised $20,000 this year in a single day bringing the three year total to $70,000. Taylor, the Square Rooters, and Wine with Sue did a great job playing for the crowd. But to me (I may be a bit biased) the biggest excitement came when Whole in One played. The tiny stage held out and the boys did a great job as always! Ricky made sure to wish a very surprised Kath a Happy Birthday before the second set. Till next year!

On Saturday, my team "The Gurus," is hosting a benefit at Metro 53 in NYC. www.metro53.com. From 8-11 $40 - all you can drink. Part of this will go towards the team. The bigger the crowd the more of a cut the bar will give us. We are raising money for this year's Rockaway Relay for Life. This annual event raises money to help find a cure for Cancer. Hope to see you on Saturday!!!

The summer has begun with Sunday Fun-Day in full swing. If any of the guys would like me to put in any information about the league please email me.

The top team for this year's Relay for Life, the Breezy Point Pipe and Drum Band, is hosting a "Bowl-A-Thon" at Gil Hodges Lanes on June 19th in Brooklyn. It will be a night of free bowling with free shoes too! All they ask for is a donation at the door to help their Relay Team. They will be having a 50/50 raffle, and are also looking for sponsors to sponsor 10 bowling lanes.

Happy Belated Birthday Wishes go out to Patrick Fitzgerald ~ May 3, Will Bosch ~ May 11, Eileen Baumann ~ May 17, Megan Galvin ~ May 19, Gene Neibel ~ May 21, Vincent Lehner Jr. ~ May 25, Bobby Willis Jr. ~ May 26, Kathleen Baumann ~ May 31.

Happy Birthday Wishes go out to, Jennifer Diffendale ~ June 6, Olivia Colleran ~ June 16, Kylie Galvin ~ June 25, and Vinny Bonnano ~ June 27.
