Malden Ma, likes the idea

I've love to help, but due to an illness, I can't drive. Its a great idea, though. I'll be down in Disney in the next 2 week though.

Uno's is close to the highway. easy on and easy off. Buffalo Wild Wings is in the same plaza. I will have to put my thinking cap on for other possibilities.

We'd love to get together! We live just less than an hour from Fitchburg! Not sure if we could do a meet-up after, but we can work on that! I think it would just be four of us, our older two kids will probably be working that day.

The List is up.. Please check it and if I do not have names or a number for you please PM post here...

On another note I am really torn as to what to do afterwards.. In my opinion we have 2 choices.. Rent a park and have a BBQ... Lots of fun but also lots of work (Which I am up for as I have had a ton of offers for help). The rental fee is $500 so we are looking at about $15 a person for a typical 4th of July cook out with all proceeds going towards GKTW. I am sure we can get some donations from local grocery stores.

The second choice is a restaurant. Pizzeria Uno's can host up to 100 people and will give 15% back to GKTW. Checks would be on your own and we would pretty much take over the restaurant but we cannot do raffles or things like that. We would also eat and leave.. the opportunity for socializing is limited a little more in my opinion.

So I ask.. Which do you prefer?!?

Tara- I like the idea of the BBQ, but what if it rains? I wish I knew more restaurants in that area.
