REMINDER: Tomorrow is the Michael Barrow Fundraiser

In case you might not have put it on your calendar, please remember that tomorrow, February 18th is the fundraiser for the Michael Barrow Fund.  It being held at the Grove Park located at 33 Waugh Drive between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.

Thanks to the hard work and generosity of a lot of members of our Harris County Criminal Justice Center Community, this event has jumped from being just a run-of-the-mill fundraiser to a true event to celebrate the life of a great attorney and friend.  There have been extremely generous donations from too many people to list here for items on the silent auction that are amazing.

You can bid on everything from rounds of golf at exclusive courses around the county, Rockets tickets, a week stay in Playa del Carmen, a catered crawfish boil, artwork, wine, time at a timeshare in Vail, a duck hunt and much much more.

And the biggest prize to the highest bidder is the opportunity to use a Tazer on Robb Fickman.  I'm not kidding.

So, if you thought this was going to be just a small, somber occasion where the winner of a raffle got to search for a prize carefully hidden in Dupont's beard, think again.  This is going to be an amazing event.

I know the weather is going to be bad, but please stop by if you can.  It is going to be a fantastic event.

And it goes without saying, how proud I am to work with such great people who have given so much to help out.

This is the first I've learned of Mike's passing and I'm shocked and deeply saddened. Mike and I attended Robert E. Lee High School together (he graduated a year after me). He was truly a classy guy and had a great sense of humor. He will be truly missed

There was a good turnout, and Todd, Tucker, and Touchstone did a great job with the food under difficult circumstances. Kudos and thanks to all.
