Fellow SCMC Members,

It was brought to my attention that Pete and Crystal Fritzsching have lost everything due to hurricane Katrina. They lost their home, their Cobra, their furniture, and everything else except themselves. They were wise enough to leave home to a safe haven. While I know many of you are giving to different charities to help with the relief in MS, AL, LA, and FL. I hope that you will find it in your heart to help a fellow Cobra Club member out of the most difficult times they will have to face. Pete is retired military and has served our country. The did not ask me to assist them at all. I know they can read this e-mail so I want them to know that we care about them and their well being and if it were any of you, I would do the same for you too.

So, I'd like to take up a collection for them. As unrealistic as this may sound, the goal would be $10,000.00. If you walked into two rooms in your home, you probably have $10,000.00 worth of furniture in there. It's not a large sum of money when you add up all of your material things you have in your house. This will at least assist them to try and put them somewhat back on their feet for the next few weeks.

I'm not sure how to do this but I figure we could do this one of two ways, just write them a check and mail it here and I will mail them all to them once I've recorded what we have collected. Or we can set it up in the store and the club can mail them one check or several checks for the net amount from Visa/MC. I would also like to post this on the BB and thank those of you that have found the generosity in your heart to help someone that is truly in need.

I apologize for not getting you more positive information but when the times get hard, we have to pull together. SCMC will give the first donation of $250.00 to them and I'm personally going to write a check for $100.00 to assist them. I hope others will join in!

Mail your check to the following address:

SCMC
1642 Huntmoor Drive
Rock Hill, SC 29732

Please make the check out to "Pete Fritzsching" and not to the club, thanks.

Sincere Regards,

Tony Sorrentino

Tony, as mentioned in my email last night, the check is in the mail today and you should receive it by early next week. Thank you for providing the opportunity to help in this time of need. Scott and Shannon.

Thanks Rich. I will post the amounts here that we collect as a club. Pete said he was in shock when he saw the club's message about taking up some donation money. I know it isn't much but maybe it will help some?

So for now, this will be the list that I post to as we get donation checks in to help them out.

Current Donations are from:

SVT Cobra Club - $250.00
Tony Sorrentino - $100.00

Total = $350.00

As a suggestion, I wouldn't post names with donation amounts. I'm just afraid that someone won't donate because they can't afford to give as much as the next guy. Every donation is important no matter how much or how little. It all adds up. Possibly just a running total?

Will there be donation jars at all our events?

I will see you at Gingerman and can personally give you my donation. :)


Thanks for setting this all up. :thumbsup:

Bring a jar with you and take care of that for me, would you? :) Just collect the $$ and give it to Lisa to deposit in the club's account and we'll write them a check. Please get the names of the people that donate.

Thanks,

Tony

Y'all, the first wave of donations went out yesterday and we received some more today. I want to say that the out pouring of help has really said a lot about the members in this club. While SCMC made a small donation to the Fritzschings, SCMC will still donate to the Red Cross this year, too.
