Fundraising continues

I’ve raised approximately $600 toward server fees and the cost of the hotel stay for Traverse City, which is fantastic, but having no savings due to mom’s illness + paying for dry cleaning, the oil change and the server = the server fees have pretty much wiped me out.

I need your help to get me up to Traverse City, so I’m asking that you please lend a hand if you are able. I’ll take anything from a couple-hundred-dollar donation down to a couple of bucks as it all paves the road to Traverse City, where I’ll be heading for two full weeks to cover the Red Wings’ prospect tournament and main training camp.

The hotel costs about $1,800, and add gas and groceries and I’m looking to raise over $2,000 for the trip.

I’m working with Paypal at to raise funds, but I’ll happily add services if necessary to facilitate making your part of the equation easier. Email me at if you want to send a check or send $ through an alternate source.

Thank you for your readership, your time and your support. We’ve got about a week to raise at least half the hotel $, and I believe that we can do it!

  1. George, the server costs you shared seem pretty high for what you’re doing if you want to chat about it, share some traffic info I would be glad to help you out maybe getting a (possibly significantly) cheaper setup in place. I’m in software engineering and development operations so it’s my day to day. Would do any of the work gratis as a thank you for the years of content.

    1. Dress clothes. I wear dress shirts and pants to the events. It’s not a t-shirt and shorts kind of atmosphere for the media.

      1. Too bad that your mom and aunt can’t help you with laundry. Sounds like you do a lot for them. But maybe they aren’t able to help or something.
