VOLUNTEERING AT PROGRESSIVE FIELD Single Volunteers has the potential opportunity to work concession stands at Progressive Field for a minimum of 10 Indians games this season and we get paid to do this. We could potentially make $4,500 to $6,000 for our operating fund as well as supporting our charities’. We would not need to do fund raisers for our charities.

An accident at home nearly puts him out of his misery permanently. This jarring event has a strange effect on Richard. He now sees his marriage as wasted time and feels it necessary to exercise his libido as quickly as possible. Suddenly reborn, he invites the delectable doll who lives on the floor above down for an evening of temptation. A soul-struggle of heroic and hilarious proportions ensues.

Guys, this is an event just for us! Join Cleveland Cavaliers Coach Mike Brown for this inaugural community march to help raise money to support the awareness and prevention of violence against women. Single Volunteers will be putting together a team to “walk a mile in her shoes” and, yes, the men will be asked to wear high heels. (Keep in mind that this is a fundraiser. Participating men are asked for a registration fee of $25).  The walk will be one mile around the Gateway Sports Complex.  Women are encouraged to sign up for the walk also but I don’t think it will be quite as entertaining. Volunteers are needed in two areas: A team to help with administrative and support duties starting at 4:30 or  to be on the Single Volunteer  team with Pat Percival as captain  (start practicing in your high heels now!) . Every paid walk participant will receive 2 complementary lower level tickets to the Lake Erie Monsters game vs. the Hamilton Bulldogs immediately following the walk!  (Additional tickets can be purchased at a discounted rate of $5). Other activities will include contests, music and refreshments.  Contact Pat at PJP2@Roadrunner.com Regina Health Center is moving the car show from Wednesday, August 20 to the rain date, the 27th.  Lots of rain in the forecast.
