Al’s Black Tie, Summer Kickoff, Endurance Motivation, Non-Party Spectacular for ACS and a chance to win $53,000!

You are NOT invited!

For most people, the start of summer not only identifies good times ahead, but also being over booked. I’m going to save you the guilt of skipping a party, keep your calendar as free as possible and give you a chance to win $53,000, by NOT inviting you to a black tie benefit for the American Cancer Society.

A black tie fund raising party is a great idea, but I’ll save us all the stress and still provide you an opportunity to support the cause and have a few laughs. I will post pictures and share videos of the non-event, which will feature some inspiring stories and interviews from Grandma’s Marathon in Duluth, MN on June 22.

The reason why I’m not hosting this party: On September 8th 2013, I will be attempting to complete Ironman Wisconsin and raise money for the American Cancer Society. This NON-event will be the fundraising kick off for summer – and hopefully it will motivate people to live a healthier lifestyle!

Date: 6/22/2013

Schedule of Events:

  • 7:45 – 11:00 a.m. Good pain and suffering

  • 3:00 p.m. Drawing for the Lottertree
