The Academy of Kempo Martial Arts Haturday Fundraiser

Acadmey of Kempo - Hamden - Haturday - Fundraiser - Pennies for Patients - Leukemia & Lymphoma Society = Shihan Frank Ciarleglio


Hamden: On Saturday March 17, 2012, we held our first Haturday. It was a great success due to the great supporters and their hats.

The Haturday event was planned to help the children from the Hamden Public School System to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society with their Pennies for Patients Collection Boxes.

On Haturday our student, family members and friends participated by donating 50 cents to wear a hat and enter into a contest to win an Academy of Kempo Martial Arts hat. We had our student bring their Pennies for Patients boxes in and we divided that days donations and deposit it evenly into each of their boxes.

There were photos taken of each participant with their hats, some of our participants created their own hats for the contest and other had found some very interesting hats through their travels. There was a Haturday Parade and other fun activities that included their hats. We posted the photos on Facebook in a Haturday Photo Album and are asking people to VOTE for the hats that they like best. You can vote on as many hats as you like by hitting the like button near the photo, if there are other voters in your home they can also vote by writing the vote in the comment box, this must include the voters name in the comment, for example, 1 vote from Tom.  The contest will be a week long and whichever hat get the most votes will win the Academy of Kempo Martial Arts hat. Voting ends on Saturday, March 24, 2012 and the votes will be tallied up. In case of a tie, we will be holding a tie breaking voting session. 

If you have already voted I wanted to thank you, it has made the children very happy to hear that they have votes for their hats. If you have not voted I hope that this newsletter will encourage you to help bring a smile to the faces of the people who participated. If you do not have a Facebook account, you can view the photos on our web site and if you want to vote, you can ask a friend to enter it for you.
