Fellow AP readers -
I'm a long time reader of the site and like the rest of you a HUGE Chiefs fan.
My family was asked to be the Ambassador Family for the March of Dimes in Central Iowa. We're tasked with raising awareness, and most importantly money for the March for Babies this May. You can read our story here - http://thevogeltwins.blogspot.com/2014/02/help-us-give-back.html
Through our families, friends, and local corporate donations we've gotten off to a great start - we're currently the 8th best fundraising team in the nation - with over $16,000 raised so far.
Part of our plan for helping raise funds has been to hold an online auction. Through my wife's connections through Hy-Vee and the Chiefs, we've pulled several Chiefs items from her vendors and my own collection that could help us raise some pretty big $$$ - several signed items: Derrick Johnson jersey, Brandon Flowers football, Tamba Hali football, Justin Houston football.
But the biggest deal is that the Chiefs found out about our cause and the Kansas City Chiefs donated a Suite Experience Package for 2 people that is out of this world!!! 2 tickets to a game in a Suite, Pregame on-field passes, and parking. Normally this would cost $2500 per ticket. This is our signature auction item. We were truly amazed by their generosity.
I reached out to Joel and Chris about posting the auction here and they were both generous enough to encourage me to post it here to help spread this opportunity to the best group of Chiefs fans in the world. We're truly lucky to have these guys running the show!
Here's the link to the auction site:
The auction runs from now to April 24th. I hope you all will click on the link and bid on some great stuff to help out a wonderful organization.
Thank you all so much and GO CHIEFS!!!
Mike, Melissa, Logan and Caroline Vogel
