Walk For Wishes 2013


We had a grand time at the Walk For Wishes in Irving yesterday, with 11 crew showing up (with 9 in uniform!) to help raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The walk was invigorating, the weather beautiful, the company exquisite.

Also, Grubbs Infiniti was donating $20 for every person driving or riding in one of their show cars, so we piled in to bring in some more cash. They actually let me drive a convertible. Probably not the smartest idea on their part, but it was fun!

With all the food and drink flowing from every direction (including our new friends at My Cupcake Garden!), it’s easy to forget that these events aren’t actually just about having fun. The money from today’s event will go toward granting the wishes of children with terminal illnesses, and if that doesn’t give you an “aww” moment, you might be a Vulcan.

As always, we had a great time with friends new and old, and we hope to see you at the next event!

First Contact Day 2013

So, it’s the 50th pre-anniversary of First Contact with the Vulcans. And what else would Fleet 31 do on a day like today, a commemoration of peace? War. That’s right, we’re going to Main Event in Plano to engage in war games and tactical exercises. So if you’re bored today/tonight and don’t know what you want to do, come on out and play laser tag with us!

And to top things off, tomorrow morning is the Walk For Wishes, benefitting the Make-A-Wish Foundation. If you’re thinking it’s too late to join us, you can stil register and/or donate here, with more details on Facebook.

Happy First Contact Day – Live Long and Prosper.
