Update from April 30, 2012.
From Tom Chlada of ABN AMRO Clearing Chicago:
Please help me raise money for the improvement of the St. Joseph High School Sports Facilities. (All contributions are tax deductible)
My personal goal is to raise $40,000 and that would be done with pledges (by the pound) for weight lost during the baseball season while I am working on the fields in my spare time. I hope to lose between 25 and 40 pounds in approximately 6 weeks! You can make a single donation or pledge by the pound and force me to get back in shape.
The time frame for this fundraiser will be from Saturday, March 17th – Sunday, June 3rd.
St. Joseph High School is very special to me! 18 members of the Chlada Family have attended St. Joe’s and we all have a deep respect for the mission of the institution. St. Joseph currently services the communities that have been hit the hardest by the current economic environment. The school has been forced to dedicate resources to financial aid for families that need help and unfortunately that leaves little surplus for sports projects. Any improvements to the athletic facilities are done through donations and volunteer projects. That’s where I come in! I will work my weight off by working on the fields and getting a laugh and donations from my friends.
