Gallons of chili

This is the first time I made gallons of chili!  But it was fun.  And it was for a great cause.  I made 2 gallons of my buffalo chicken chili for the Washington Multi Family Housing Authority chili cook off, to benefit Dawnrising.org and all victims of domestic violence.  I did this as a representative of my company, Avenue5 Residential.  Our theme for our booth was Andy’s Room from Toy Story and I was dressed up as Woody.

Everyone loved my chili, came to our booth asking for it by name, and stood in line to wait for a sample of it.  For presentation I served it with a stalk of celery and a sprinkle of cheese.  My chili was so popular, I ran out of chili just after judging was completed.  I made the semi finals but didn’t win a prize for my chili…this year.  We’ll get them next year!

Help me raise money for men’s prostate cancer this Movember!

Join me in raising money for men’s prostate cancer this Movember!  November is the month we call Movember and this is an annual fund raiser to help find cures for many different cancer that affects only men, including prostate cancer.  This is a very popular fund raiser among myself and my hockey community:  All of us officials, players, coaches, mentors and USA Hockey certified seminar instructors, like myself, participate in this each year.  Start by growing facial hair and spreading the word.  Then you can go to this website to get involved and find out more:

Yep, that’s me, the Iron Man, Every Day Eddie hockey referee!

Ever try to do something charitable and get lots of push back?

I recently set up a private fund raiser to help a friend going through a health crisis.  I did it out of the purest intentions, but unfortunately, most people thought I did it for the wrong reason.  Most people assumed I had the wrong intentions.  Many people were jealous that I thought of it before them.  And several others questioned my integrity, methods and honesty!

Why is our society so jaded that you are automatically accused of being guilty until proved innocent?  I guess with so many scams these days, even by so-called “charity organizations,” have made most people distrustful.  We live in a sad world where whenever someone tries to do something good or raise money, they are immediately judged as being shifty or scamming!  We need to get back to days gone by when we assumed everyone’s attentions were pure from the beginning.  Or maybe we can never get back to those days.  I will press on, through all the push back, and continue to do good and help out my fellow man in crisis, continuing to raise funds to those less fortunate than myself and for those in need.
