2012 Autographed SEC Coaches Ball

The Southeastern Conference (SEC) has once again generously donated an autographed football to Avery’s Hope. There was only one ball that was signed by all of the coaches and SEC Commissioner Mike Slive during 2012 SEC Media Days.  This is also the first year of the expansion that welcomes University of Missouri Tigers and Texas A&M University Aggies.

Avery’s Hope will be selling tickets over the next few months and a winner will be chosen on December 1, 2012, during the SEC Championship game.  The football will be presented in a very nice wooden based crystal styrene display case that has a UV coating to protect the signatures.

For a donation of $5.00, you will receive 1 ticket, and for an even better deal, you can get 5 tickets for a donation of $20.00.  All proceeds will go to benefit Glycogen Storage Disease research being done at the University of Florida.  

This year, tickets can also be purchased online on our DONATE page by selecting the quantity in the drop down list box.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us on Facebook, or by e-mail.

Every Minute Counts.

Please visit Crazy Days Designs to purchase your very own “Every Minute Counts” pendant and chain.

The hand stamped washer and 24" ball chain necklace are made of stainless steel and the alarm clock is sterling silver.  The price is $30.00 plus $5.00 s/h and all proceeds from the sale of these pendants will be used for Glycogen Storage Disease research.  These pendants are “hand made with love, just for you!” by a mother of two little GSD boys, so she definitely knows the meaning of Every Minute Counts.

Thank You SEC

We would like to thank Commissioner Mike Slive and his staff at the Southeastern Conference (SEC) for generously donating the autographed SEC coaches ball to Avery’s Hope Fund.  The football was signed by the 12 coaches of the Southeastern Conference during the 2011 SEC Media Days.

By selling raffle tickets, we were able to raise $5200 dollars that will be used for Glycogen Storage Disease research at the the University of Florida.

We would also like to take a moment to thank Associate Director of Media Relations, Chuck Dunlap (@SEC_Chuck) for making this fundraising event possible.

Thank you SEC, and congratulations on winning a 6th consecutive BCS National Championship title.

1st Annual T-Shirt Fundraiser a Success!

This should have been updated some time back, but things have been really busy around here.  Thanks to your enormous show of support, we sold over 250 t-shirts during our first ever T-Shirt Fundraiser.  From these sales, we were able to raise more than $3000 for Glycogen Storage Disease research.  Not only did you help by selling and purchasing shirts, but each time one of the t-shirts is worn, you are helping to spread the word about GSD!

Arabian Nights Fundraiser

In September, approximately 70 guests gathered at the home of Dr. Mary Missak in Memphis, TN, for Arabian Nights, Dinner & Entertainment.  Guests dined on authentic Egyptian cuisine prepared by the host and also enjoyed Middle Eastern influenced belly and fire dancing.  During our presentation about GSD you could have heard a pin drop, even the children were very interested.  The majority of the guests (many of them doctors) had never heard of or knew very little about Glycogen Storage Disease.  We feel that the night was a very big success in that we spread the word about GSD in our local community and raised $5500 for research.

Thank You for Your Support

It is time to catch up a little bit and let everyone know how successful our recent fundraising efforts have been.  First off, we would like to say Thank You to everyone who has participated in any way over the last few months.  Maybe you bought a T-shirt, or a raffle ticket, or voted on our Toyota Sponsafier submission.  Maybe all you did was tell someone about Glycogen Storage Disease.  Whatever you did, Thank You.  This is what it is all about.  Spreading the word about GSD and raising money for research to find a cure.  Again, Thank You.

If you would like to order a TShirt please email us. Please put “TShirt Order” in the Subject. Indicate in the email how many of each size and in what color you would like to order. Don’t forget to specify Short Sleeve or Long Sleeve for each selection.

The shirts are Hanes 6.1 oz/yd 100% preshrunk ComfortSoft cotton Tagless shirts. Take this into consideration when choosing a size.

We will respond to your email to confirm the final price of your order and discuss payment, pick up, delivery, or shipping options. Shipping prices, if necessary, will be based on your location in relation to ours. Minimum shipping price will be 5.00 for the 1st shirt and will increase accordingly depending on the number of shirts and your location.

This is a Pre-Order or Pre-Sell TShirt fundraiser. This means that we will take ALL orders for shirts first, and then submit the order to the print shop, which will in turn print the number of shirts that are ordered. Our plan is to take orders for about three weeks, or less depending on interest. Once we submit the order the print shop has asked for two weeks to process and print the order. So, we are looking at about a five week wait time from now until the shirts are available to be distributed.

This is our first endeavor of this kind so please be patient. Hopefully this will work as smoothly as possible. We really appreciate everyone’s interest and help in our fundraising efforts thus far. For those of you who know Avery, you know how much this means to us. We get excited thinking about everyone who knows more about Glycogen Storage Disease today than they did yesterday. Awareness is truly the key to success in finding a cure.
