For the second year in a row, the Sandbar sponsored a team in the annual Walk MS, a fundraiser for the National MS Society.
Unfortunately, a number of our friends and regulars suffer from multiple sclerosis, so we're happy to help support research for a cure.
All of our team members who raised at least $25 got a free green Sandbar T-shirt to wear, and everyone who showed up to walk sported their new shirt.
We walked a little over 3 miles on a beautiful day in west Lawrence. Our team has raised a total of $2796- second place among the participating teams!
And, the Sandbar will donate an additional $100 to the total from our Foursquare check-in special. Every check-in at the Sandbar on Foursquare during the month of April was worth a $1 donation to the cause. We had slightly under 100 check-ins, but we're rounding our donation up.
After the walk, our team members moved on the Sandbar for a post-party with cake, snacks and fruity drinks. Join us next year!
If you couldn't walk with us or donate, remember that bartender Danny also raises money for the National MS Society. Every year he rides in the MS 150, and Danny and his team do some serious fundraising. You can check out his fundraising page here.
