Lacey Pate Poker Run

2nd Annual Lacey Pate Poker Run
OK we have picked a date but have no flier yet but I am working on it.

February 5, 2011 11:00 am which is the Saturday before the Superbowl but this date worked with some of our neighboring Jeep Clubs so this is it.

SAVE THE DATE!!!!!!!!!!!
I will provide Hotel info and a Flier as soon as possible.

We had a great time last year and were able to raise a good amount of money last year so lets beat it this year.

for those who don't know Lacey's story yet, this is from last years thread

https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=16153

This is the e-mail I received from Laceys mother regarding her illness. Please take the time to read this story.

JKO Venders lets show everybody what your made of and come of those checkbooks and give us some swag.
Again the date will be posted soon and we are thinking sometime in January or February 2010.

Thanks

Jake (Jester)


In July of 1999 Lacey was born in Winter Haven, FL. She was immediately flown to Tampa General's NICU. After 2 weeks of intense testing the doctor's diagnosed her with King Syndrome. She is only the 3rd child to be born in the US with this syndrome. The doctor's said she would never live. At 3 weeks old she had her first surgery, this was to stitch down her diaphragm to allow her lung to work. This surgery was unsuccessful, so Lacey had to be on oxygen 24 hrs a day. Lacey's spine was crushing her lung, causing her to have chronic respiratory insufficiency. She had contractures of all her joints, causing her to be unable to raise her arms, walk or crawl. She also had severe kypho scoliosis, webbing of the neck, severe hearing loss, hypoglycemia, malignant hyperthermia, failure to thrive, a severe club foot and a vertical tailus. At 1 year old she had 3 surgeries to help correct her feet. She also had to have 2 surgeries on her hips. When she was 3 years old she was still on oxygen and on a bi-pap machine to help her breathe. Her lung doctor told us her condition was getting worse & if something wasn't done we could lose her. Her spine was now at a 86 degree curviture, & it was crushing her lung and in to her pelvic bone. No one in Florida could help her so they got us in contact with a doctor in Texas who had invented a surgery they thought might save Lacey's life. In Sept of 2002 when we flew out to meet with the team of doctor's Lacey was 3 years old and only weighed 18 lbs. The doctors agreed to do the surgery if Lacey had a feeding tube placed to help her gain some weight and a port so they could access her IV's since her veins were not very good. We came home & Lacey had both of those surgeries. In April of 2003 we flew back to Texas for the Titanium Rib Implant. Lacey was in a coma & on a respirator for 9 days. We were able to fly her back home a month later. The surgery helped and she was able to eventually come off of the bi-pap and is only on oxygen at night and when she is sick. Lacey had a great desire to walk and once again there was no one in Florida who could help her. Through the doctor in Texas we were able to find a surgeon who could help her but he was in Seattle. In May of 2007 we flew out and met with him and he scheduled her surgery for Oct. of 2007. She had 2 surgeries on her legs in Seattle, and we were able to bring her home 1 week before Christmas. Lacey is now able to do some walking with the help of a walker. She has now had a total of 25 surgeries & we travel every 6 months to Texas for surgery on her spine. She will continue to have surgery every 6 months for the next 7-8 years. The travel cost is an average of $3,000 - $5,000 every 6 months. Lacey requires oxygen on the plane which is $400 each trip, we rent a car and are usually in a hotel for about 2 weeks. We also have to eat each meal out or at the hospital. Lacey is a precious child with a positive attitude.

Thank you so much for considering Lacey for this fundraiser. This will truly be a blessing to her and our family.

The route is set!

It's a good one. At LEAST 2 bars. So if you drink, bring a DD. That's a designated driver - not a stripper. But you can bring a stripper. Depending on who you are .

Bumped again.

I dont have time to fucking think anymore - but I am finding time to plan this event. You cocksuckers better come. If you are in FL and you aren't there - I need a hand written excuse from your doctor or, better yet, a coroner - as to why you did not attend.

Come on - have you seen Lacey's pic? The little thing is as close to a living, breathing angel as you'll see in your life. Come help her or you rot in hell forever.

(I should have a job in public relations - I'm eloquent)


Tease: Stops will include - as previously mentioned - BARS, something that could send you flying 1000's of feet in the air, and a very HAUNTED stop! Oh hell YEAH!

As long as I don't need 4wd and my pharm preceptor doesn't slam me with work, I think I should be able to swing this. I've been meaning to go to some kind of Jeep gathering. Are the specific details finalized yet??

Ohh and it would be the weekend after my 25th B-day. So this could be very fun and a good idea to make it. Nothing like helping others. You guys are great.

Details finalized? The route is set. The starting/ending points are set. They will be posted this evening.

We have several prizes up for grabs via raffles. Good stuff too. Not shitty stuff like hats, hoodies, tshirts. Real prizes!

Come on out and BRING people with you. They dont have to be in Jeeps to participate. It's for charity!
