Two ways to be charitable

For anyone interested, there is a banner of with Summer and Teddy's picture hanging on Chattanooga's Walnut Street Bridge from now until Sunday, September 20th. So put on your walking shoes and head to the bridge for a nice walk. There are 7 other pics of kids who also receive treatment locally at the clinic and T.C. Thompson Children's Hospital. The banners are there to raise awareness for Childhood Cancer and to also hopefully raise money for our local children's hospital.

Also, I have failed to mention on my blog, I think, that September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Not sure how I could've made it half way through September without mentioning it, but I'll blame it on Facebook. Many local cancer moms are selling gold bows/ribbons (for your home or office door) for $7.00 or a gold bow car magnet for $10.00. If you want one, you can get in touch with me or go to (this will be good for all of you out of towners who want a flashy new magnet for your car). :) The money we raise will go to the hematology and oncology clinic where Summer is treated. A good cause for sure!!!!

For all you Chattanoogans.....

Taste of Hamilton place benefiting our cancer kids here in Chattanooga is next Sunday (the 20th) See below....

I wanted to be sure you knew about Taste of Hamilton Place on September 20th. (You can buy advance tickets at a discount online at ) This is the first Taste of Hamilton Place event, and it promises to be a delicious way to help the kids at T.C. Thompson Children's Hospital! We have more than 25 area restaurants participating, and one price gets you samplings of a huge variety of creations from ribs and jambalaya to gourmet cupcakes! Macaroni Grill, Bonefish, Big River, Abuelo's and many more will be there, and all proceeds benefit the Children's Cancer Center at T.C. Thompson Children's Hospital. More than 50 children will be diagnosed with cancer in the Chattanooga region this year, and this world-class center allows them to be treated right here at home without leaving their support network of family and friends. Taste of Hamilton Place is a great way to spend a fun dinner with the whole family for a great cause. We'll have lots of entertainment, and Stefanie Whittler, Miss Tennessee 2009, will be singing and signing autographs. Please pass the word on and I hope to see you there! To buy tickets or for more information you can call the foundation offices at 778- 6600 or go to

I should have lots of pics to share on Wednesday, including a few of the bridge. Stay tuned.
