Reds Games for Kids Fundraiser
Reds Games for Kids is a 501c3 non-profit charity that began when a group of Reds fans, proudly called the Power Stack Pack, realized that our childhoods would not be the same without a visit to the ballpark to watch our favorite team play baseball. We decided that we wanted to share this special memory with local children who face adverse conditions or who may otherwise never be able to attend the game. The children we hope to help have been neglected, abused, been separated from or lost their parents, or suffer from physical or mental conditions. To date we have taken over 200 children to a Reds game, but there are still many more kids waiting for their turn.
The reason I am contacting you today, is because we are holding our first Reds Games for Kids Fundraiser on August 7th from 4:30 to 8:30 at MadTree Brewery. The event is free to enter, though we do ask for attendees to consider making a donation at the door. We will be holding raffles for specially made baskets of goods ranging from Reds merchandise and tickets to restaurant gift cards as well as a split the pot raffle. MadTree’s fine brews can be purchased from the event’s private bar and food will also be available at low cost from the event’s food tables. It is also a family friendly environment so kids are welcome to join their parents as well! We hope to make this a very successful event so that we can continue to take kids to baseball games and we would appreciate your support in this endeavor. If you could find time to mention our event on your station to help us spread the word we would greatly appreciate it. For more information please contact me or visit our website at the link below. Thank you very much for your time and consideration. Have a great day!

Van for the Klare Family
This is the fundraising campaign for Van for the Klare Famiy.
Our family is a unique one. To understand this, you need a bit of background on our brothers, Nicholas and Nathan, and their disease, Charcot-Marie-Tooth. At an early age, both boys were diagnosed with CMT. CMT is a neuro-muscular disease which causes their muscle tissue to deteriorate and their nerves to stop functioning. This disease has left both boys in wheelchairs. Our brothers inspire people around them daily. Nathan, the youngest, works in a doctor’s office as well as runs an independent business selling his art and doing freelance graphic design. Nicholas has continued running his business, Klare Lawn Service, with his older brother, Andrew, despite having to be lifted in and out of the truck and on and off his lawnmower. It is his passion.
And our parents have always made it clear to us that we should pursue our passions.
Over the last few years, however, it has become more and more difficult for our parents to transport our brothers. As of now, our parents lift both boys in and out of the car, which has taken a toll on both of their bodies. They can’t go on this way much longer. They are currently working with vocational rehab to see what can be done in the way of a handicapped accessible van; however, they have been told it could take up to a year to be approved, then a van would need to be purchased (new) and then adaptations made. That is IF they are approved. But as mentioned previously, the van was needed months, if not years, ago. We have started this campaign to help our parents, Bill and Paula Klare, raise money for a handicap accessible van.
Any help you could give would be much appreciated by the Klare family. The smallest amount given can change four people’s lives more than you could ever imagine. Thank you for all your help.
