2nd Annual Beale Street Snuggie™ Pub Crawl benefiting Amelia’s Voice for RRP
It’s that time of year again. Crisp fall nights are perfect for cozying up in your beloved Snuggie™. The time is nearing to bar hop on Beale Street in our sleeved blankets to raise money and awareness for Amelia’s Voice for RRP. Last year’s event was huge, and with many more venues involved this year, River City Management Group LLC is planning an even bigger and better Snuggie Pub Crawl. The date to save for this highly anticipated event is Friday, November 19, 2010.
All you need to enjoy the fun is a Snuggie™ – the Blanket with Sleeves! The Snuggie™ keeps you warm and gives you the freedom to use your hands to drink beer, shake hands or high five. Go crazy decorating your Snuggie™ and you could win the “SNAZZY Snuggie™” Contest. Prizes will be awarded in several categories, including Best Male, Best Female, Best Group, and Best in Show. Think outside of the box and get creative! Last year, the competition was fierce with many amazing ideas.
This year participants can play for prizes with the addition of the Beale Street BINGO run. Cards will be given at the registration table, and the bingo numbers will be posted at each stop. Awards will be given to the first 5 BINGO hands turned in at the Awards Ceremony. You could walk away with hundreds of dollars in prizes.
Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis(RRP) is a disease in which tumors grow inside the larynx, vocal cords and trachea. It affects both children and adults. There is no known cure for RRP. If left untreated, these respiratory tumors will continue to grow, blocking the patient’s airway with suffocation being the likely result. Frequent surgeries are imperative to keep the patient’s airway from being compromised and to prevent the tumors from fatally spreading to the lungs.
Participants must be 21 years of age and wearing a Snuggie™ to join! Stay warm and look cool while bar hopping through downtown Memphis. Entry Fee is $10 with a portion of proceeds going to Amelia’s Voice, a private benefit founded by Stephen and Kimberly Thompson. Learn more at www.rrpf.org or http://www.ameliasvoice.com. Tickets will be available to purchase online soon!
The Snuggie™, available in a variety of colors and prints, can be found at Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens, CVS, other local retailers, as well as online.
The Snuggie™ craze is sweeping the nation…join in!
