One week in and we have received 11% of our goal. However, it is actually closer to 22% with the donations from our last three events that have not yet been submitted (this should be reflected within the next couple days)! So…
Thank you all for your support so far!!
We had a pretty good turn out on a couple of our restaurant events, and a great turn-out at the bingo event that we had last weekend. As stated earlier, these contributions should be added shortly. Regretfully, we were not as vigilante in getting the word out on the first several restaurant events, so we are going to try even harder with these next ones.
We will be hosted by Legends Express Car Wash on Saturday, July 23rd, at 628 Coit Rd in Plano. It should be a great event, with hot dogs and drinks being served while you get your car washed. The business has agreed to donate 20% of all sales of anyone that uses the code 2010 when going through. It is very important that you remember to use this code so that it goes towards the campaign. We will also have students onsite taking any cash donations from customers.
Then, on Monday night the IHOP at 933 N. Central Expressway in Plano will be hosting us. They will also be donating a percentage of the sales of every table that mentions they are there to support the UTD Cambridge campaign (or C2C2C). So, come have dinner and bring the family! Just remember to mention the campaign.
With such a great start we still need help in getting the word out to more people about this great cause. We are so thankful for the donations to date, and with your continued support, we may be able to reach even more people.

A special shout out to Vincent De Tiberiis for his $100 donation today! Thank you to everyone that has helped us so far in reaching towards our goal. This dream opportunity for these 5 students is quickly creeping towards a reality!
