Coffee

 
 

First you need coffee and plenty of it. Hi-test! (thanks to Dunkin Donuts in Rotterdam providing it!)

Volunteers

 
 

You've GOTTA have a committed group of volunteers who donate their time each and every year to man (and woman) the phone bank in our conference room. How can we thank them enough?

News 10's Steve Caporizzo

 
 

You need local celebrities to drag themselves out of bed and help us on the air. News 10's Steve Caporizzo is always there for us, no matter what the weather (which he's in charge of!) He's like a rock star! The mere mention of his name makes the phones light up!

Inbox

 
 

Essential to have an IN basket that's fuller than an out basket. This is the basket that we draw from to read the pledges. We need a really full inbox to make this work. (hint hint)

Paul Wein


 
 

Last but not least, you need someone who's lived the experience to be on hand, and Paul Wein from the law firm of Lafave, Wein and Frament always "has our back" as well. His son was diagnosed 30 years ago this week, coincidentally and is doing well and out there raising money for St. Jude just like his equally dedicated father. Who better to talk about what St. Jude does than Paul?
