GREY NEWS! NO GAME THIS WEEKEND BUT YOU CAN GIVE BLOOD-PLAY RUGBY ON 2/17/18 AND HELP A SISTER OUT THIS WEEKEND 1/6/18!

Posted on January 3, 2018 · Posted in CT Grey News

Happy New Year to all… except you backs and those of you who have gone over to the dark side and became referees…you can all…well…you know right, Kiwi? My original new year’s resolution was to be nicer this year….that lasted until about noon on  1/1/18… so I’m just going to continue to be my normal charming self. Two event announcements are below. This weekend, please help our friend Denise McGuire Benson out by coming to the fundraiser or by making a donation and put 2/17/18 on your calendar for our annual blood drive. Same place as last year and PLEASE register in advance. More details to follow! This has been a very entertaining day as you get to see grown men whine and faint and get all sweaty about giving blood and then you get to see what mischief Meyer, Hoppy and Benito get into later in the day.

DENISE MCGUIRE BENSON FUNDRAISER
Join us in an evening of love and support for our friend Denise in her battle to kick cancer’s butt! It will be an evening filled with food, music, dancing and fun, and of course, a cash bar for a drink or two (or three)…..just the way she would want it! All funds collected will help with medical expenses and the financial burden this disease leaves behind.
