Paver Power

By | Uncategorized | No Comments
       Burt Appleby. Michele Paver. Two very selfless people who’ve dedicated their professional lives to helping others. Michele an educator. She’s been teaching special needs elementary children for over 15 years. Burt is an EMT.  He spends his days answering calls from those in crisis and saving the lives of so many in our community. We appreciate the great service they both provide and love them for it. Now they need our help. Michele has been diagnosed with stage 3B cervical cancer and is currently enduring 8 weeks of chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

Burt and Michele are to be married in New Orleans on June 6, 2015. That’s where we come in. We want to do everything possible to get the bride-to-be down the aisle CANCER FREE!!! We’re holding a fundraiser and all proceeds go to making the dream a reality. So come support two of JBD’s favorite patrons, at the #PAVERPOWER Flip Cup event!  There’s a $20 entry fee which will include all you can drink beer, well drinks, pizza and secure your spot in the tournament.  Teams will consist of 5 players and there will be a prize for the winning team!  You don’t want to compete in the tournament? That’s ok, you can still participate in the drink and food specials for $20! Spread the word and use the hashtag #PAVERPOWER to show support and bring awareness to this terrible disease.  Help us FIGHT THE FIGHT!!!
We look forward to seeing everyone!
