    On With Life Silent Auction Golf Outing - Great Cyclone Items

    As many of you know my wife is at On With Life, a intensive brain rehab facility in Ankeny, a very unique facility in the nation. They are having their annual golf outing and silent auction for their foundation. 100% of the proceeds go to their rehab programs, typically to make much needed non-budgeted rehab equipment purchases. I can tell you first hand that the stuff the technology and equipment that is available to buy that they don’t have can make a huge difference in a person’s recovery. See the attached flier for more info on the funds.

    I know that you are all proud Iowa State fans, as I have been for a long time. But you can't imagine the outreach that my family received from the university during initial days after the accident. You name the coach or administrator and we had them reach out to us by email, by handwritten note, or through common friends. I was truly stunned when I opened the first ISU Note Card to find that one of them had taken the time to personally write a rather long note. While they were all wonderful gestures, what amazed me even more was when we actually went back to them to see if they would help provide some items for the On With Life Silent Auction, they came through in a huge way. I will post a brief summary of the ISU related stuff here. You can find a complete list of all the auction items at www.onwithlife.org. (There's some great stuff in their for sports fans too including some good stuff from other universities, and items keep coming in so check back for new additions). But to really get the value out of these rather unique prizes we need to make sure that cyclone fans from all over know about this auction July 8 2010. If you can’t be there for golf or dinner you can place proxy maximum bids, or you can call me and OWL and someone can call you one the phone during the silent auction and proxy bid that way.

    ISU Coaches Progressive Dinner
    Spend an evening having a three course dinner for six with each course hosted at the home of one of the following Iowa State coaches: Head Women’s Basketball Coach Bill Fennelly; Head Men’s Basketball Coach Fred Hoiberg; and Head Football Coach Paul Rhoads. (Dates and times to be arranged with successful bidder. Which coach to host which course to be determined).

    ISU vs. UNI Women’s Basketball Roadtrip Experience for Two
    Ride with the team bus with the ISU women from Ames to Cedar Falls, attend the pre game shoot around, and team meal. Two tickets close to the floor.

    ISU Football Package with JP
    Make a day of it with 4 tickets for the ISU-UNI football game, Sept 25, in the Athletic Director's Suite. This package includes the food, beverage and parking, as well as an ISU shirt and cap.

    This is what makes me proud to be a Cyclone.

    Especially the first item... Tickets to a game and merchandise are EASY. Giving your personal time...that's taking it to the next level.

    I know the girl that is the guest speaker for the dinner. I grew up in Grundy Center and know the entire family fairly well. She is an amazing and inspirational story. I didn't know about the outing until you posted it tec71 so thank you for that. I am going to get a team together and support this amazing cause.

    I've worked at OWL. Fantastic facility. Most rewarding work I have ever done.

    It is a ridiculously fantastic place. It amazes me even more to see what they do with what they have. For the results that they get you would expect that they would have every state of the art rehab gizmo there is. That's just not the case. We couldn't be luckier than to have it in town.

    Just wanted to get this back on the front page. There are some PRICELESS items for Cyclone fans looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Please help us spread the word...

    Bumping this up front.

    Looks like some awesome stuff to bid on. The Iowa State stuff sounds like great stuff.....who wouldn't love to have dinner with those three coaches?

    Tec71--your courage is amazing and an inspiration to all of us. You obviously are a man of great faith.

    I would love to attend this event (and every other charity golf outing for that matter) but will be in Canada fishing and relaxing with family. My wife did some part time work at OWL and has great things to say about it.

    Stay strong...

    Sorry to be dumb about this, but I want to support this project big time, and when I go to the website for items on auction, I only see a few. I don't see at all any of the Iowa State things. Could someone please help me everything available? I go ot items 1-10 and maybe 5 come up. I went through all 10 tabs but didn't see much other than the Templeton Rye.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    TEC.....my heart goes out to you and your family. Stay strong brother.

    Re: On With Life Silent Auction Golf Outing - Great Cyclone Items

    You might need to refresh your browser depending on when you first visited the site. There won't be 10 items per tab yet as they are holding spots for items that are still coming in. The ISU and UNI stuff is 21-30. For anyone who's a UNI fan there's a great canvas entitled "Down Goes Kansas" drawn up by Coach Jacobson of the final three against Kansas, signed by him, Ali and Gary Rima. On second thought it has KU getting beat maybe it's a great item for an ISU fan.
