Tumbleweed Southwest Grill Fundraiser Tuesday Night

Our friends at Tumbleweed are always very generous when we need their help with anything! They have provided several lunches for my Big O Party's here at the station and next week they are helping out The Help Office.

Tumbleweed, 5257 Frederica Street,  is hosting  a fundraiser Tuesday, August 7th, with 10% of all proceeds benefiting The Help Office.

This will be a really fun night! For some crazy reason, they've asked me to be a celebrity server, so prepare yourself for that trainwreck! I was never a server for a reason...terrible balance! Ha! It is a Hawaiian Luau theme,  what shall I wear?!! Joe Lowe will also be serving as well, in his coconut bra!!
