JDRF One Walk Talk- September

in ,

Floyd’s 99 Barbershop

We would like to extend our arms and give a big JDRF thank you hug to Floyd’s 99 Barbershops in Fort Worth, Bedford, and Flower Mound. They just finished up their sneaker campaign with us and we saw lots of sneakers that had been sold on the walls and windows of all three stores. This campaign was a huge success this year. Thank you to all the Floyd’s 99 Barbershop employees for making it so much fun; and thank you for those who bought the coupon books or sneakers!

JDRF and Ford

The Ford Global Action Team is raffling a one-of-a-kind 2020 Shelby GT500 Chroma Caviar on November 14, 2019. The proceeds go to support JDRF. On the local level, the Greater Fort Worth Chapter has tickets that you can purchase or you can come by and pick up tickets to sell as a fundraiser for you walk team. Tickets are $10 each, and you can purchase or sell as many as you want (maximum of 75,000 tickets will be sold, cash or checks made payable to JDRF only). You do not have to pay for unsold tickets, but please take the number you think you want to sell so that others may take advantage of this fundraiser.
