Hot Dogs for Haiti

Brian and Jen had a crazy idea a few weeks ago. They thought they'd invite a bunch of neighbors, family, and friends to their place after work on Friday evening for hot dogs and lemonade. They stuck a big pickle jar on a card table and asked for donations to help children through Starfysh.

Sue and I stopped by. What fun! Simple: hot dogs and lemonade and chocolate chip cookies. It was crazy busy. I saw one guy stop his car in the middle of the road in front of the house, run up to stick money in the jar, then run back to his car and keep going.

They made $1700 in that two-hour, front-yard tailgate party. Man, there is good money in hot dogs.

Clear your calendars for Thursday, November 18th at 7PM! Details coming....
