A few days ago I was eating at a restaurant on the lake and was truly touched. My dad asked our waitress what was going on that night in town. She told us that it was karaoke night at the restaurant but that she and a bunch of the other waiters, waitresses, and bartenders were supporting a fellow employee at a charity event he was throwing.
We all started thinking about this. A few minutes later we called the waitress over again and asked her more about the charity event. She told us that one of the bartenders organized an event for his mom who was battling stage 4 lung cancer. He was collecting donations of all types and amounts for a silent auction. Immediately, we all looked at each other and knew that we had to do something to help.
We got back on the boat and sped home. We threw on some clothes and headed into town to get some goodies to donate for the auction. I wasn’t sure if I was overstepping my boundaries by just showing up as a stranger but I knew I had to contribute something. I signed a few things and headed over to the restaurant to drop them off.
As soon as I met the man (he was in his 20s) I knew I had done the right thing. He hugged each and everyone of us and thanked us all for coming. Thank you Seeler, for welcoming my family and me. You are such a brave young man and I applaud and respect everything you are doing for your mother and the cause. I hope the event was a success the other night. I am keeping you and your family in my thoughts.
I can’t find the website to donate to but as soon as I get in touch with Seeler I will let you know.
