The Results Are In!

THE OFFICIAL RESULTS ARE IN: This year, for the 3rd Annual Boise's Got Faith event, a grand total of $30,000 was raised! 100% of this amount will go directly to Linzi and Brylee's funds, to assist them and their families with medical-related expenses that they may encounter as these two beautiful and courageous girls continue their fights and recovery against cancer. The Boise's Got Faith organization is so very thankful for all of YOU for pouring out your love, lifting these girls in prayer and for your very generous financial support, as they continue to bravely and courageously fight the cancer that has touched their lives. Thank you, and God bless all of you for your very BIG and caring hearts, and for playing such a HUGE part in making this year's event so successful, and such an amazing time of smiles, laughter and fun for all!

Boise's Got Faith is Tomorrow!

The 3rd Annual Boise's Got Faith takes place tomorrow, beginning at 1pm at Veterans Memorial Park, and we are ready and so excited to to honor, celebrate and support 2 year-old Linzi Shoemaker and 7 year-old Brylee Gabby in their courageous fights against cancer.

Just a few things you should know, and a few reminders for tomorrow's event:

1.  For those of you who have already registered, and were not able to make it to pick up your shirt and packet on Friday, you can pick these up tomorrow at our registration table before the event.  Our registration table will be open for shirt and packet pick up beginning at 11:30am.

2.  If you, your family or your friends have not yet registered, but would like to, you can still register in-person before the start of the event.  The event starts at 1pm, and the registration table opens at 11:30am.  So, if you have not registered and you do want to be a part, be sure to show up early, so that you give yourself enough time to get signed up to participate.

3.  In your packet, you will find a meal ticket.  You will need to present this at the event tomorrow, so that you can enjoy the tasty food that will be served by Famous Dave's Bar-B-Que.  So, don't forget to bring that with you.  Also, you will find a couple of prayer cards, one for Linzi and one for Brylee.  We are hoping that you will take a moment to write a prayer or some words of encouragement for Brylee and Linzi, and drop these in the beautifully painted milk jugs (beautifully painted courtesy of Kat Smith, Lula Coe's mother) that we will have at the turn-around points on the course tomorrow.

4.  We want to remind all of the kids that will be at tomorrow's event, to wear your brightest, most colorful and crazy socks!  We are asking the kids to wear these, so that we can properly remember and celebrate the life of beautiful Michaella "Lula" Coe.  Colorful and crazy socks were one of Lula's most favorite things to wear, so we are hoping to see all of the kids at tomorrow's event showing off the most brightest and colorful socks that they can find!

5.  Finally, for the adults: bring your wallets!  Tomorrow's event features a silent-auction, featuring many amazing items and packages, including:  A BBQ for you and 20 friends, hosted by the Boise Fire Dept. and their Boise State Bronco Fire Truck, a Sun Valley Golf Package for four, A Two Night's Stay at Tamarack with Golf for Two, a One Night Stay at Shore Lodge, a signed Kellen Moore Detroit Lions football, and many, many other great auction items.  100% of silent-auction proceeds goes directly to Linzi and Brylee, so bring your wallets, and bid big with your hearts!

We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow, and we thank you all for your love, support and encouragement for Linzi, Brylee and their families.  Tomorrow is going to be a beautiful day of love, smiles and laughter, as we come together as friends, family and community and stand beside these two sweet girls and support them in their fight.

We thank you all for your participation and all of your support.  See you all tomorrow!

In Faith,
Boise's Got Faith
