Wine & Dine: A Task Force Fundraiser
November 6, 2016 @ 5:30 am - 11:00 am
Why would AFELA select this event as a fundraiser for the Task Force? The Disney Wine & Dine Half-Marathon is on Sunday, November 6. This is really close to the first Friday of November which is LOVE YOUR LAWYER Day! LOVE YOUR LAWYER Day is seen as a time to highlight lawyers’ services to the community, raise money for good causes, make public service announcements and provide education or pro bono services. With AFELA’s membership answering the call to participate in this unique fundraiser, we can highlight all the good we do for seniors and persons with disabilities in our own special manner … and still have fun, fun, FUN!
Here are the AFELA members who have made their brave intentions known to get to the Finish Line and raise important funds for the Task Force:
To contribute to these brave souls, please click here to download the Wine & Dine Fundraiser Pledge/Contribution Form. We have a couple of different ways to support your favorite runner. The descriptions for the ways to contribute are listed below.
PLEDGE PER MILE
Much like the school fundraisers of our youth, you may pledge $1, $5, $10 or any amount towards the mileage. Half marathons have a set mileage of 13.1 miles, but your racer will have to complete the race for you to contribute the full amount. We will send you an invoice for the amount of your pledge at the conclusion of the half marathon.
PLEDGE FOR EVERY MINUTE YOUR RUNNER IS FASTER THAN THEIR PROJECTED FINISH TIME
Encourage your runner to run faster! You may pledge an amount based on how much better your favorite runner does than their projected finishing time, in seconds or minutes. For example, if someone pledges $20 per minute for Cary Moss and she finishes 5:32 under her projected time the donation would be $100. We will send you an invoice for the amount of your pledge at the conclusion of the half marathon.
PLACE YOUR BETS
Pick your favorite runner to win, place or show and pledge an amount to donate if they DO NOT live up to your expectations. Nothing like a little pressure, eh?
The finishing order of the AFELA runners will be handicapped using their anticipated finishing times and the current odds for each runner will be posted on AFELA’s Facebook page. For example, pledging $10 on Britton Swank to Place means you will donate $10 if Britton does not finish in either first or second place among the AFELA runners.
You will place on the pledge form: BRITTON SWANK $10 PLACE
Remember, under this option you donate the amount pledged if the runner DOES NOT finish in first, second or third place, as applicable.
We will send you an invoice for the amount of your pledge at the conclusion of the half marathon.
JUST A CONTRIBUTION, PLEASE!
Is the above a little too complicated and you are just interested in supporting your runner as well as the Task Force? You may contribute any amount you wish! Simply include your contribution amount as well as the runner to be credited. We will invoice you once we receive your pledge form.
Thank you for considering a contribution to our 9 amazing runners! Please click here to download the Pledge Form.
We look forward to putting in the training to running for this great cause!
