Steve Gall Campaign – FINAL Day


Were are down to the final day of the “Neighbor In Need” campaign to raise money for Carver Dewitt-Gall’s upcoming back surgery. If you’ve been thinking about donating to this campaign, it’s now make-or-break time. We’re over half way to the goal of $1,500, admittedly not a lot of money considering the costs of hospital surgeries these days, but it will help the Gall family manage the 20% of costs they will have to pay out of pocket.

Those of us who are following this campaign closely know that it’s the last hours of a campaign that can make the difference between achieving and surpassing a goal or falling short. We sure hope this campaign makes a strong finish, and we really appreciate everyone’s generosity. Even small donations of $5 or $10 will help get us there.

Steve Gall’s co-worker Greg Lehman, sponsor of this campaign, is offering his time and talents on Saturday to bake gourmet wood-fired pizzas and host seatings at his place for an afternoon/evening pizza party for donors who chose a PIZZA PARTY Reward (see the “Rewards” tab on the Campaign page) as an incentive.

If you look at the “Community” tab on the Campaign, you will see Steve Gall’s picture on a number of those donations. That’s because our crowdfunding campaigns provide a way to include “offline donations” contributing to the total. A number of Steve’s co-workers at Oaklawn have already chipped in to help, giving money directly to Greg or to Steve for this campaign, and those donations are each recorded and are helping to reach the goal.

Greg tells us there are still seats remaining for each hour of the pizza party, so why not grab a few Rewards and invite your friends to join you around the table at Greg Lehman’s place. (For more details, check out the “Updates” tab on the Campaign page.) And while Greg is cooking pizzas, ask him to regale you with tales of his summers spent in Antarctica!

Thanks to everyone that has given so far!

    Just 12 hours remaining before this campaign ends. Greg tells me that about 50+ people including volunteer helpers now have tickets for the Pizza Party tomorrow. “This still gives us plenty of capacity to bake more pizzas if we get last minute participants.” So if you want to give to a good cause, help a neighbor, and have some fantastic home-made wood-fired pizza, just click on the links above and contribute to the Steve Gall fundraiser. Last chance — do it today.
