UGA Hat Raffle for Mikey’s Helping Place

October 16, 2011

In connection with Mikey’s Helping Place and Magnolia Blossom, I am proud to announce a charity raffle. We are raffling off a University of Georgia hat autographed by head coach Mark Richt.  The hat was obtained with the help of AJC columnist Jeff Schultz and we thank him for giving us this opportunity to do a little bit of good in our community.

Founded in early 2011, Mikey’s Helping Place is a special sort of charity.  It was created from the heart of a 5-year-old who wanted to help raise money for local children in need.  After Mikey’s first successful event, a 2 week read-a-thon for the Children’s Home Society, he was inspired to continue his charitable work by organizing more ways to give.

Mikey has selected Hayley’s Angels as the charity which will recieve 100% of the proceeds from the raffle.  Hayley’s Angels is based in Jefferson County, Florida and their mission is to reduce the burden on families who have a child with a critical illness or injury by providing financial and emotional support.  Hayley’s Angels is inspired by a 10 year old girl who bravely battled a pontine glioma brain tumor before taking her place in heaven.

Raffle tickets are $1 for 1, $5 for 6 and $10 for 15.  Tickets will be on sale until October 31, 2011.  The winner will be picked by Mikey and a video of the drawing will be posted on Mikey’s Helping Place, Magnolia Blossom and this blog.  To purchase tickets in the Tallahassee, Florida area please see Courtney Rubin, Becky Bonfanti or myself.
