Cornhole for a CURE

Saturday, November 1, 2014
11am

Baymont Inn Convention Center
4079 W. US 10
Ludington, MI 49431

The Ludington Cornhole Association is hosting a singles Cornhole tournament on November 1 at the Ludington Baymont Inn & Suites with all proceeds donated to CURE. Jerome and I are the founders of the Ludington Cornhole Association. We hold many Cornhole tournaments throughout the year in the Ludington area, but this tournament is a special one for us. In 2006 our youngest son, Jett, had his first seizure, and has continued to have uncontrolled seizures since. Jett is now 9 years old and loves to play Cornhole and help out with tournaments whenever we allow it.

Cornhole is a great family friendly game that is a fun for all ages! On November 9th we will be having a singles tournament starting with sign in at 11 am. We will have food, drinks and t-shirts available for purchase. A bake sale and a Kool-Aid for CURE stand run by Jett and his brothers will be set up to raise even more money for CURE! We will be giving away door prizes, and a lot of other fun stuff with activities for kids and Cornhole for all! Come out for fun, food, prizes and Cornhole for CURE! Register by donating $25 (or more!) to CURE below, or see the Ludington Cornhole association website for more ways to register!

Pose for a CURE

Tuesday, November 4, 2014 - Thursday, November 27, 2014

Calling all yoga lovers - teachers and students!

In honor of the 65 million (yes, you read that correctly) people living their lives with Epilepsy, the Pose For A CURE fundraiser has been created. Our goal is to raise funds for CURE: Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy in addition to raising the general public's awareness of Epilepsy.

The fundraiser itself is really quite simple.

1. Kind hearted people make a donation to CURE in the amount of their choosing using the link below.

2. They then print out a confirmation of donation.

3. Yoga teachers in studios from all over the US will offer a class(es) at their studio allowing anyone with a receipt of a donation to attend for free as a way of saying "Thank you".

 * Yoga teachers - The class can be in your style of yoga, at your studio, any day in the month of November (which is Epilepsy Awareness Month), at any time of day. It can also be as simple as allowing donors to attend a class you already have in your weekly schedule. No additional classes required. When you confirm the date and time with me at poseforacure2014@gmail.com I will post it on this page for donors to see.

That's it! Just 3 easy steps to making a difference in millions of lives!

In honor of Benjamin & Marah and all those suffering from epilepsy in the Andovers

They are now in 4th grade and busy with school, friends, and activities. They are fighters and as devastating and debilitating as epilepsy can be, it will not stop them. We feel so lucky that Marah and Benji’s seizures are under control. For so many other families, that is not the case and for them, we ask for your help so that they can live active and fulfilling lives.

Our goal is to raise $10,000.00
