Mike and Deb McCarthy: SMC Expenses

 Thanks to everyone for checking this out!! Mike and Deb have won the Valentine's love story scholarship aboard the Simple Man Cruise in October. In order to make this incredible gift from Sixthman and SIMPLE MAN Cruise a reality, they still need our help! Mike and Deb have been die hard Skynyrd fans for 30 plus years and are extremely grateful and humbled by this wonderful opportunity. The banner, in the above photo, flies proudly in their home and on October 20th, they host their annual "Freebird Celebration". A time to honor band members, family and friends who are now freebirds. How appropriate for their friends and family to be able to have this yearly celebration in 2013 while Mike and Deb are sailing with Lynyrd Skynyrd!

Unfortunately, due to health reasons, Mike and Deb are on "fixed incomes" and cannot afford to make the extra costs of this once-in-a-lifetime vacation. (they have never had a honeymoon after 20 years by the way)

Flights are averaging $550.00 per person round trip from Salt Lake City, Utah into FLL or MIA=$1,100.00. Cruise and port taxes are $225.oo per person=$450.00. Hotel costs for the night before and after the cruise are around $150.00=$300.00 It is a long flight and Mike will need rest on the 24th before their long journey back to Utah. A total of $1,850.00. The extra $150.00 would be applied to their onboard spending.

If there is anyway you could help send Mike and Deb on this dream vacation/honeymoon, it will be greatly appreciated. Thank you again for reading this and for any contribution you can make.

As Mike would say "Keep the Faith",
