Big Drawing to help Ken
Quote this message in a reply
Another reminder that the Ken MacIntyre benefit drawing will take place October 21st and if you've not purchased your tickets I hope you will soon. Likewise if you have, why not get a few more. The more you spend the better your chances of winning one of the many great prizes available. I know I have mentioned this effort many times here, but you know what? Ken recently had his 4th chemo treatment and he still has eight more to go. Not exactly a fun schedule, nor something to look forward to.

I am also well aware that Ken is not the only one in the world having to go through something like this. He is however the son of a friend, and an unlikely friend at that. His Mom, Lisa Hume MacIntyre is an archaeologist, and by now you know how much I love archaeologists. This time, however, it's different. Lisa is different. While I have never met Lisa, I was privileged to debate her on the Relic Roundup show a couple months back, and surprise of surprises....she was civil, understanding, and appreciated what it is we do. Do we still have differences? You bet, but we have since become good friends, and when I found out about Ken I just wanted to help in some way.

Shortly after asking you all for help here I received an email from Alan Holcombe at White's Electronics. He said "how about if we donate a White's VX3 detector package and you find a way to raise money with it". Honestly I was not at all surprised. I have known Alan for 30 years and both he and White's have gone out of their way so many times to help people that I've lost count, and there were times when their generosity went unannounced or advertised. It's just how they are and why I am proud to be part of their family.


Ken is now a tekkie

In any case when I mentioned this to Butch & Anita Holcombe (no relation to Alan) at American Digger Magazine they said, "hey, hold on, let's see if just maybe we can get the rest of the manufacturers on board with this" and to make a long story short, we did, and we're still working on getting prizes. To find out how you can help and how you might win one of these prizes click
PLEASE JOIN OUR EFFORT AND HELP OUT A FRIEND IN NEED
As you know I, along with the gang at American Digger magazine, have been sharing the story of Ken MacIntyre, the son of Lisa MacIntyre, archaeologist, and want to thank all of you who have donated. I am very proud of everyone involved in this pastime.

I also mentioned that we were not done helping, and over the past few days the gang at American Magazine's Relic Roundup and I have been contacting the manufacturers and magazines, asking for their help, and they, like you, have responded graciously. So mark it down folks....on the October 21st Relic Roundup Show YOU could be the owner of a:

We also have three one-year subscriptions to American Digger Magazine, three one-year subscriptions to Lost Treasure magazine, three one-year subscriptions to Western Eastern Treasures, plus books by Dick Stout, Greybird Publishers, K.B. Slocum and Krause Publications. Likewise prizes are continuing to come in.

You can donate as much as you like; the more you donate the more tickets you'll receive (every $5 gets you one ticket). The drawing will be held on the October 21, 2013 Relic Roundup Show. You do NOT have to be present to win. To purchase tickets, please call 770-362-8671.

You can also email greybird55@att.net or you can pay directly via Paypal to the following account: Lisamac59@yahoo.com. If you choose to pay via paypal you MUST include name, address, phone and email so that you can be contacted if you win. You will be emailed photos of your tickets/numbers.

If you wish to pay by mail send your checks or money orders made out to Lisa MacIntyre, and mail them to Greybird, Post Office Box 126, Acworth, Georgia 30101. Here again be sure to include your name, address, phone and email...If you want your tickets mailed to you be sure to enclosed a self addressed, stamped envelope. Otherwise you will be sent photos via email.

How old is Ken? I went through three years of chemo when I was a kid and it's no fun. Do I just send a paypal payment with my info? I would like to help out.

Being a new member as of less than an hour ago, this really brought a smile to my face. Having a daughter (my oldest of 3) that has cerebral palsy and a heart condition among other health issues. Wish their family nothing but the best, and our prayers will be with all of them.

However, not to be a poor sport but I paid for 5 tickets back on oct 11th directly through paypal to Lisamac59@yahoo.com as instructed in your post. After never receiving the photos of my tickets in my email like your original post stated I would receive, I called the telephone # last friday I believe it was. A woman answered from american digger. I explained to her I had paid directly at paypal and she proceeded to tell me they were running behind but she was going to spend the weekend getting caught up and I would get the photos of my purchased tickets. 
I NEVER DID END UP RECEIVING MY TICKETS!!! Its pretty hard to believe I ever had a legitimate chance to win anything in all honesty....
