Today’s a big day for us! Koons Automotive is donating a new “adapted” van. Most people know this as a handicap van, but I thinking it might not be politically correct to say this any longer. Not sure why. I should probably look in to this.
I’ll make sure to get a lot of pictures and video.
I do know the media will be here. Newspapers are coming for sure. I’m crossing my fingers that we might get television coverage too. You just never know. So much depends on what other news is happening at the same time. Koons deserves it. Ryan deserves it… it keeps him relevant. I’ll write all about the day’s events tomorrow.
I’d also like to remind you of two fundraisers:
- The first begins today. A longtime friend of Ryan’s is hosting a week-long one at the Hair Loft in Leesburg, VA. You can never look to pretty!
- The second is on December 21st at Mali Thai in Ashburn, VA. This should be a good time to treat yourself with a night off from cooking during Christmas week with some outstanding ethnic food.
Both are donating their proceeds to Ryan’s Special Needs Trust Fund.
Today’s post must be a short one. I have to step-it-up to get Ryan’s therapies in this morning so that we can enjoy the van and publicity. Anyone who is in the area is free to stop by to see it. It’s going down at noon.
