The Fundraiser Launches Today!

We have had a few fundraisers in the past, but we're hoping for huge results on this one. We are thankful for Beers for Boobs at TGI Friday's, the We've got your Back, Tina Facebook group, everyone that came out to Plucker's in Austin, and the tupperware fundraiser. We're hoping that this fundraiser alone will be able to cover the wedding and help with a lot of hospital bills. Trips from New Jersey to MD Anderson in Houston are not cheap either.


If you donate to a good cause, to show our gratitude, you will be entered in a raffle to win a vacation cruise of a lifetime to the destination of your choice. Spend four days and three nights on a fabulous Carnival cruise for two with an ocean view room. We're even throwing in a free carry-on suitcase.

This raffle is a fundraiser for Tina Tinervia. She was first diagnosed with breast cancer in May 2006. Just two years after remission, the breast cancer returned as Stage IV in September 2008. With mounting medical bills and the cost of raising a six-year-old child, Tina needs your help. She and her fiancé, Paul Velez, are getting married in June 26, 2010. Your generous donations will contribute to hospital bills and the wedding. If you would like to read more about her story, go to Tina's Elevator: Chronicle of a Strong Woman's Ups and Downs.

The amount of your donation determines how many times you are entered. The more you donate, the more chances you have to win. $10 equals 1 entry, $20 equals 5 entries, $25 equal 10 entries. You can donate by the clicking the button to the right or you by mailing by check. Be sure to include your phone number and email address so we can contact you if you win. Make the check payable to Tina Tinervia and mail to:

Lisa Mutchler
155 Georgia Tavern Rd
Farmingdale, NJ 07727

The prize does not include airfare or taxes. If we reach our goal of $6,000, we will pay the taxes* on the cruise for you, so please help us get there!

The raffle will be open from April 14 through May 19, 2010. The drawing will be held Sunday, May 23, 2010. Tina will draw the winner who will then be contacted by phone or email on the same day. A video of the drawing and the winner's name will be posted here.
