Might you be eating supper on Wednesday, December 4, 2013?

Well, since you’re going to eat supper that day anyway, why not help out a deserving organization and treat your family and/or friends to a sit down supper?

Jax Rainbow Assembly #21 invites you have supper at Sweet Tomatoes, 1115 Mary Susan Dr., Jacksonville, FL 32246 MAP

Sweet Tomatoes will donate 15% of sales generated by this promotion. Purchase a meal and a beverage and enjoy the great meal and help a great organization.

For your meal to count you must print out the flyer below and present it when you pay for your meal. It’s that simple. Each register receipt must be accompanied by one of these flyers to be counted toward the total. There are some rules printed on the flyer as well.

Temple Lodge 23 Annual Shrimp Boil

Shrimp Lovers!! You gotta check this one out. I have a couple friends I brought to this event last year and they have been asking ever since then about the next occurrence. This is it!! All the information is contained in the flyer. Notice the time is 1pm to 4pm. Plenty of time to get there early and then still make it out to hear Mark Brunell speak at our exciting Dinner/Supper event that evening. Details available here.

Incidentally, this flyer was very nicely done. I can’t claim the credit for that. It’s our brothers at Temple Lodge who put it together. Come on out and support them in their efforts.

An Evening With Mark Brunell

Keynote Speaker Mark Brunell

Brother!! Have you shared this information with your friends and family? This promises to be a very rewarding and inspiring evening with one of the Greats of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Mark Allen Brunell (born September 17, 1970) is a former professional American football quarterback. He was selected by the Green Bay Packers in the fifth round of the 1993 NFL Draft. He played college football at Washington.

Brunell was a three-time Pro Bowl selection with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He has also played for the Washington Redskins, New Orleans Saints, and New York Jets. In 2009 he earned a Super Bowl ring as the backup quarterback and holder for the Saints’ Super Bowl XLIV winning team.

Hugh Greene, President and CEO Baptist Health has noted that, “Through the Brunell Family Foundation, Mark and his wife, Stacy, have been active supporters of Wolfson Children’s Hospital for over a decade and have contributed more than $1 million for children receiving pediatric and neonatal intensive care. In addition to their generous financial gifts, the Brunell’s have also made frequent visits to the hospital, showing their huge personal investment improving the lives of children and their families. We are so grateful to have their support in our community.

Brother, help get the word out about this event. Get as many people as you can to come share this truly uplifting and inspiring evening. Make a commitment to ask a minimum of 20 people over the next two weeks. Don’t restrict yourself to lodge brothers. Ask everyone. Talk to people at church, at the gym, and when you go to a restaurant for supper. Let’s get as many people as we can to come hear the inspiring words of this highly successful man.
