You may recall last Fall we talked some about wanting to find a way to insert a charity component to these tournaments. Tyler and I were actually just talking about this again early in the week - and then with the tornados' that came through the area it seemed perhaps we had found the need where we could help.
We've all seen the destruction from this week's storms and are saddened by this destruction and loss of life this week across the NC & VA areas - with some of the worst damage occurring right in the backyard of Smith Mountain Lake in Appomattox County, VA.
In an effort to assist those in need, Tyler and I will be donating ALL proceeds (not just profits, but all proceeds) from the sales of the remaining Striper Mafia Tournament Shirts to charities that will directly aid those affected by the storm in the Appomattox County area.
We are offering the long-sleeve for $20, and the short-sleeve for $17, plus shipping at cost. We have a limited # of long-sleeve shirts remaining in Medium, and then the short-sleeves are available in M, L & XL. If you are interested in purchasing a shirt to help with this cause, please drop me a PM here, or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will have any remaining shirts available at the Striper Mafia Tournaments and we will also accept additional donations for this need at those events.
If you have other thoughts and ideas on how we as a group could help for this need, or if you know a company or organization that would like to get involved with us to assist, drop me a PM to discuss as well....

You all are great - we're down to a handful of Medium long & short-sleeve shirts.... if you know someone with a smaller frame that would enjoy one of these shirts, then consider purchasing one as ALL the proceeds will go to Tornado relief in VA.
A quick follow-up - we raised $400 from sales of the shirts and received a $100 cash donation this weekend - bringing our total to $500. A check will be sent this week e to the local Red Cross in the area, designated for disaster relief for the tornado victims. Thanks to all of you that helped support this effort.
