Jump On The Love Train

Jump On The Love Train

For the next 4 weeks we are asking you to “Jump On The Love Train”

If you have any gently used kids, teen’s, men’s, or woman’s clothing and or unused toiletries, shampoo & laundry soap, donation drop boxes are at the locations listed below & Clothe My Children.     

In our present culture, families have to make many tough choices. Pay the electric bill? Fix the car? Buy more groceries? New shoes? Clothe My Children eases a burden by providing free clothing. The average American spends $1736 on clothing each year. For families at or below the poverty level of income, this is just not possible. From the newborn babe needing to stay warm, to the stylish teen looking to impress, to the mom or dad proudly starting a new job, we are honored to help meet both the practical needs and the silly wants that are a luxury to the families we serve. Clothe My Children allows families to pay for more important things, keep their dignity, and maintain an appearance that promotes self-worth and value.

Conquer Chiari Comedy Benefit Show

Sun, 04/14/2013 - 5:00pm - 11:00pm

Hello Everyone! 
 
As many of you may know, my daughter had surgery in 2009 for a neurological disorder called Chiari Malformation.
 
It's a disorder where the brain descends down on to the spinal cord, causing symptoms such as headaches, body pain, and often Doctors misdiagnose it a MS or other neurological disorders. 
 
This Sunday evening (4/14) at Side Splitters Comedy Club, I am presenting a comedy show, rated PG, to raise money for Chiari Malformation research.  I will be hosting the show along with some local radio friends and three of Knoxville's funniest Comedians, Sandy Goddard, Kristine Kinsey, and Josh Phillips. 
 
There is a silent auction that begins at 5:00 p.m. and the Comedy show begins at 7:00 p.m..  It's a Beach Party theme, so wear your favortie tropical attire. (hawaiian shirts, sun dresses, etc.)
 
I have tickets for sale for only $10.00 each.  If you cannot attend, donations are also being accepted. 
 
I hope to see you at the show!
 
Thank you!
 
Octavius
