As many know, the Wellthatscool.com Tuscaloosa Get Up concert was a major success. We raised around $20,000 to help the Nero family put their lives back together. In the rush to get everything lined up and running smoothly, we inadvertently forgot to thank some of the people that helped make the event so awesome:
The Guitar Gallery donated the guitar for the silent auction and help sell tickets for us. Dan and Scott have both been great help to us at WTC as well as many great causes. Make sure that if you need anything to do with stringed instruments, you stop by and see them. They are a great local company and everyone of them is super awesome.
The University of Alabama’s Creative Campus partnered with us to provide the after party for the Get Up. They sold bracelets to the Druid City Arts Fest bar crawl and are donating $5000 to the Nero’s home. We mentioned it but not quite enough, Alexis, Ryan and the whole Creative Campus team we can’t thank you enough.
The Jupiter on the Strip got in touch with us late when we were out of sponsorship spots . Undeterred, Jeremiah Jones (owner of Jupiter) insisted on making a very generous donation to the cause and not caring if he got mentioned or not. He believed in the cause and wanted to join in to make a difference.
With that out of the way, we had the chance to stop by the Nero’s house as it was being built on Tuesday April 10th. It was amazing! There was a huge crew of volunteers and the house is really taking shape. Finially getting a chance to see the house really brought the whole thing home for us. Thanks to everyone that came, this has with out a doubt been the coolest thing we here at wellthatscool.com have ever been a part of. It goes to show when people come together, the force of change for the better is unstoppable
