BRBAPALOOZA: Tonight! Plus, An Easy Way To Help The James Camden Sikes Fund

In a little less than five hours, the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft will begin. Not coincidentally, so will BRBAPALOOZA. The details:

WHEN: Friday, April 27, 2012 (the draft supposedly starts at 6 p.m. CDT, but get there as early as you can to optimize your shot at a good seat).
WHERE: 360 Sports Lounge.
SPECIALS: $2.00 domestic drafts (yes, Shiner will be considered a domestic for those participating in BRBAPALOOZA), $3.00 wells, and happy hour prices for all appetizers on the menu. Oh, and it's $3.00 you-call-its after 9 p.m. CDT on account of it being Friday night.
WHO: Texans fans. All of 'em.
BRB T-SHIRTS: We may be giving away a handful (not many, but a handful) of the new BRB t-shirts.
WHO BENEFITS: The James Camden Sikes Fund.

Yesterday, I received an e-mail from a person who wishes to remain anonymous. This individual has offered to match any donations made from the BRB community to Jamesie's fund up to $1,000.00. In other words, whatever amount BRBers donate to The James Camden Sikes Fund will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to $1,000.00 by this kind soul.

"Wait," you say. "I want to help, and I want my donation to be matched, but I can't attend the event at 360 tonight. What do I do?" We thought of that, and there's an all too simple solution after the jump.

Our anonymous benefactor has agreed to abide by the honor system. If you donate online or have already done so, simply send me an e-mail letting me know how much you donated, and I'll forward it to our match man or match woman. He or she has pledged that your amount will get matched (up to a total of $1,000.00), even if that's all the proof he or she has that you donated. Easy, huh?

If you can give anything--$1.00, $5.00, whatever--please do it. You're basically doubling your donation (again, up to $1,000.00 total) by doing so, and you'll be doing the kind of good that will have a far-reaching effect.

Thanks for your time, and I look forward to seeing a lot of you tonight. It's going to be a great time.
