Three Compete To Raise Money For Charity 2009: Asking Freewill

Three compete to raise money for charity

“We’ll be asking for free-will donations and we will be doing certain things to encourage Hawkeye fans to come up and donate at some
times and Cyclone fans to donate at some times,” Liston said. Cruchelow admits the title of her upcoming auction is a little suggestive. She is hosting a “Hard bodies with packages” auction from 7 to 9 p.m. May 15 at the Party Time bar at 217 E. Second Ave. The event has a $5 cover and she’s hoping 200 people will attend. The event is open to the public. “I need something zippy so people will come,” she said of the event’s title. Guests can bid on items like dinner for two, golf packages and gift certificates that area firefighters, business owners and others will be carrying. Some of the volunteers carrying the packages may choose to go to the highest bidder along with their auction item, Cruchelow said. For example, one gift is to have someone from a local restaurant come to the bidder’s home and cook dinner.
Her goal is to raise $30,000 overall before the end of May. “I like to help as much as I can,” she said. “Win or lose, doesn’t make a difference.” Flinn has two personal connections to blood cancers. He is friends with Liston and his mother-in-law was diagnosed with lymphoma. His wife ran for woman of the year last year. He got involved this year to help children diagnosed with leukemia or lymphoma and their families. “I’m just trying to do my part,” Flinn said.
