I also have a list of around 150 (so far) people, clubs, organizations, etc. to whom I will be sending out personal invitations to the show.

Sounds good to me, I should be around still (2010 to San Diego). Lauren and I will most likely be able to help out again, the first one was a blast!

San Diego in 2010???? Man, that sucks (although the weather is MUCH nicer out there). You'll have to carry the HRME name out there with ya. :D

I am working on (what I consider to be) a significant change to the car show for next year....as well as future shows. I can't say too much now :silenced: , but please keep checking back. I hope to have this finalized within 2-4 weeks.

This "change" does not affect the date, location, time, etc. of the show.

In good time "little buddy." :D

I've just started the process, and I want to hear something back before I say anything...because I KNOW you can't keep a secret. :lol:

Imporant Announcement

It is official!!! The HRME Back to School Bash is now an official annual charity event to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

St. Jude was founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas for the sole purpose of conducting basic and clinical research into catastrophic childhood diseases, mainly cancer. St. Jude is the largest childhood cancer research center in the world, having treated children from all 50 states and from around the world. Additionally, St. Jude is the only pediatric research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance, and families without insurance are never asked to pay.

For more information on St. Jude, please visit http://www.stjude.org/stjude/v/index.jsp?vgnextoid=f2bfab46cb118010VgnVCM1000000e2015acRCRD

That's awesome!
when my daughter was 30 days old she had surgery a childrens hospital (Not St Judes). But the concept was the same and all rooms for babies included a bed for a parent, shower and meals, with no additional fees for it.

I am quite excited (and honored) about it.

I've updated the car show page on the website. I still have some stuff to add...like the registration sheet and the flyer. I'm also going to try to get an online registration set up. When I do, SB, will you be my test subject to see if it works?

So far, I've had about 15 people (from a number of different forums) tell me that they'll definitely be at the show. That's half the number of participants at this year's show back in August. :D
