I have a kareoke machine, but have to find the mic's for it.  Let me look around for the cd's too. 


There's a lady at the school who does the DJ stuff.  My daughter is friends with her's.  I'll find out from her if she can maybe help out with it. 


Pretty sure we have soccer games that day (only 4 to make up by the end of may!), but I'll bake something for it.

I know a local DJ who would probably be more than happy to help out Elizabeth. Her name is Jennifer Smith. She's great. She did our HS Class Reunion.

I'm sure she plays anything and everything. And with this being a benefit, maybe she'll do it for next to nothing. Call her and find out. I have to leave atm but if you need to call me later to find out how to get in touch with her, then feel free.

Eli, not sure if it does hook up to a tv, but it does have the yellow, red, & white plug-in's in the back. (would that do it?!) I have one mic & it does have another hook up for another one.  It's an American Idol machine.  It's yours to use, if you need it!

Elizabeth, I think it would probably be helpful if you could be more specific in what kind of donations you're looking for.

Do you need the Kareoke machine?


 I had someone ask if checks for donations be made out to the parents of McKensie or a certain account for her?

We can't be there because of a show this weekend we have to work.

You could do a cake auction. I will make a cake.
I have seen cakes go for as high as $40. Heck I bet up to $35 for a coconut one at a benefit and got outbid by the husband of the lady that baked it, he wanted it back.

If you do a auction I would be glad to donate some honey and some soap.

Just let me know.

Everything I say is fully substantiated by my own opinion.

To say that I'm really, really proud of Elizabeth, would be an understatement!!  She felt the need to do this, so she acted upon her feelings, and has done nearly 100% of getting everything together, herself.  If anyone has ever done a benefit or helped with one, then you know it isn't an easy task by no means.  But no matter how hard the task, it's nothing compared to what little McKensie is facing!!  Thru prayers and determination, this little girl has made it, and with the same, the benefit will be a success and will help to ease the burden carried by this child and her family!!

As for donations...
Monetary...cash or checks accepted.  Checks can be made out to McKensie's Mother, Tabitha. 
Items to auction off: Material items...anything from knick knacks to the kitchen sink, gift certificates, cakes, etc.

Marg, she said she will let you know tomorrow about the karaoke machine.
Bee, we are doing a cake walk, and will probably auction off some as well. Soap and honey for the auction will be great.

Any questions, please don't hesitate to call the # listed above.  If she's not able to answer the call, leave a message and she'll get back to you!!

I dont blame ya Topey.. you have every right to be so proud of her!

I will be and have been praying for this child..

Went to one and the cake walks seem to be an attraction for kids.. all of mine and hunny kept winning cakes.. and I was thinking.. aint no way they are gonna eat all of those so we gave a couple away.. it is a great way to raise money for these situations.. to have a benefit.. and Lord knows that the expenses arent always paid for with insurance companys.. and that that part unless people have had to experience it is hindsight.. so here is hoping the best and blessings for this family and many blessings on those who have been and are an outreach to this event and the family.

I do recall a hummingbird cake being auctioned at one of the ones I have been to and it went for over 100.00.

DOC is right about the cake. It was at benefit for a little girl that was about 2 years old. They kept bidding and it went up to over $100.00.


I offered to buy a coconut cake and the lady asked how much and I told her $20. They were practically giving them away in the cake walk for $1. I think when they realized that they did better being auction they shut down the cake walk and auctioned them off.


Maybe you could do cookie bags and little gift bag's for the cake walk, that way the lkids could participate and still get something and it would raise money.


Just an idea you might want to ponder.

Yep, the one for Kloie.  I haven't heard about her in awhile and I hope she is doing well.


Those little McD toys would be great or just some dollar tree stuff.
Someone may even have some nice kid stuff like stuffed animals or games that are in great shape to donate. Last but not least cupcakes. Kids love cupcakes and any finger, quick, sugary foods.


Put me down for a cake and some cupcakes. I will have to drop it off somewhere or get my son to deliver it. A couple of jars of honey and some soap.

GREAT!


No matter what anyone says about our community, anywhere, we can always come together when we need to and that's what a town is all about.

I'm sure there's still time to do it, but maybe the parents can set up a "trust" fund at one of the banks. That way, people who cannot make it can send it right to the bank or have it deposited when they go in to the bank for her expenses.
