I am so excited to be a part of Team Escalade Texas, wherein Cadillac is promoting 6 charities, and will donate $150,000 to one.
(Oh, look! Here I am with NBA basketball player, Brian Cardinal. Apparently, I was very sleepy? What?! It was early!)
The exciting part is that so many great charities will be highlighted. During the media event for this campaign, I got to meet a wonderful lady who is hoping to win the $150,000 to find a cure for Duchenne, the most common childhood muscle disease without a cure, which afflicted her son.
( I also got to meet Dallas Cowboy football legend, Drew Pearson.)
Special Olympics, The Ronald McDonald House, The Y, and others are also in the running to receive the $150,000 from Cadillac.
My job is to get YOU to vote for The Y by going to The Metroplex Cadillac Dealers Facebook page and clicking "vote" and then "share" to encourage your friends to do the same.
(Huh? How'd this pic of me with hockey legend, Mike Modano get in here?)
Did you know The Y is anchored in over 10,000 communities, and as a non-profit organization provides activities to 21 million folks?!
(Okay, so I may have begged gold medal Olympic gymnast, Carly Patterson for this pic.)
Now, if you know me at all, you know I am (ahem) the competitive type. Competitive, as in I play a cut-throat game of Hi Ho Cherrio, and I take The Official Rules of Scrabble very seriously.
This means I feel a strong compulsion to whup those other charities and bring home a win for The Y.
So, what are you waiting for? Get on over to the Cadillac page and vote for The Y! You can vote once a day!
*Special thanks to Cadillac for sponsoring this project and to my husband who got up at 5:30 to make me a hot breakfast so I could rub shoulders with famous athletes!
