This page is specifically for financial and emotional support as Stephanie Tyler-Post fights the hardest battle of her life; hence, we are Stephanie’s Soldiers. She was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 metastatic breast cancer spread to her bones.
We are coordinating a huge fundraising event which will have mice races, mouse roulette, raffles, & prizes. There will also be music, food, & beer. It’ll be a great time all while supporting Steph and her family.
We will also have opportunities for you to sponsor and name your very own mouse or an entire race. It takes a village!
Details about the event are posted on Stephanie’s Soldier Facebook Group. Please join the group as another way to follow her journey and offer emotional support. Click here to join that group.
If you’re unable to attend, we will have several ways you can still donate whether it be time, resources, or by financial means.
UP DATED EVENT DETAILS
December 21st, 5:30 – 9:30
Live mouse racing at it’s finest…There will be 6 heat races and the 7th race will be the championship race. There will be a total of 36 mice and they will each only race once. The winner and times will be posted.
There will be a track, an announcer, handlers, music, betting table, Mouse Roulette (mouse friendly, I promise), betting slips, programs with sponsors listed, a live auction, food, beer, door prizes, ect..
Ways to Contribute to the Cause:
*Entry into the Ratucky Derby will be $10.00 per person. Food is free and bottomless Bud Light for $10 plus there will be a cash bar.
**Bet on a mouse before a race. There will be a container for each mouse during each race, 1-6. Each bet is $2. The ones that placed bets on the winning mouse will split 50% of that pot evenly. The person that sponsored and named the winning mouse will win a prize. The losing tickets will go into a pot for several opportunities to win prizes throughout the night from drawings.
***It is $100 to sponsor a race and $300 to be a title sponsor. A title sponsor will get your name or company logo on the front of each pamphlet and on the big screen. If you sponsor a race and the winner of your sponsored race wins the championship race, you split the pot.
****Mouse Roulette tickets- It looks like a roulette table but the first number the mouse walks to will win. Every number will have been purchased prior to playing. If you buy into $3 roulette, you will receive 3 tickets, $5 will receive 5 tickets, $10 will receive 10 tickets. At the end of the evening, one ticket will be drawn from all of those who participated in the mouse roulette and get a $100 prize.
*****There will be several opportunities to win prizes just through drawing from a pot. If you like to bake and would like to donate baked goods, would like to bring a pot luck dish, or you are in a position to donate items that can be used for give-aways please contact me. There will also be a live auction with some really nice items!
The best way to help the cause is by sharing this group on Facebook and word of mouth. The more people we have participate, the more money we will make for Stephanie’s family and their expenses.
I will also post some examples of what it will look like if you sponsor a mouse and/or race. Sponsor money and information needs to be turned in at least a week before the event. Please get in touch with me if you have any questions or want to sponsor!
All of the monetary donations will be handled by a non-profit organization, Starfish Project. If you would like to make a donation, please go to her webpage: https://starfishproject21.org/stephanies-soldiers/.
