Judy and I have incredibly exciting news related to our Celebration of Life 2016 fund raiser. In the past we've had matching fund grants from anonymous donors of $10,000-$15,000. This year our donors have upped their commitments to $26,000. You've read that right - $26,000!

What that means is that for every dollar you give to the Celebration of Life fund raiser this year our secret donors will match it with one of their own up to $26,000. This year's Celebration of Life fund raiser's goal is $65,000. The fund raiser officially begins on Thursday, Nov. 17 and runs until Dec. 31. But you can begin giving anytime now.

As always, we have several ways to give. First, you can go to our website and give online. Just go to and click on the Help A Family tab on the homepage. Second, you can give by sending a check to SAM via our address at P.O. Box 563, Crosslake, MN 56442. New this year, you can give via your credit card by calling us at 320-310-8877 and giving us information that will allow us to charge your gift to your card.

You can also help us by getting this information out to your Facebook friends. Please consider giving this information to your friends. Consider sharing this post to your Facebook account. We'll keep you posted about how the fund raising goes. Thanks for giving and for caring. We love you guys, Pat & Judy
