Help Have A Traditional Bachelor Send Off

My son, Ryan, is getting married on October 24, 2020.   Ryan Mercure and Grace Martinelli will embark on a journey that is SO worth the effort, devotion and commitment that yields moments like this for our families.  Marriage joins the couple and the families to be newer and better families.  They need the encouragement , nurturing and help from those who know this feeling I'm expressing, our families are doing that!!!

This couple....are starting out with all the bonds for success!!!


In the year of COVID, it has been for these kids a memorable journey, the kind in a Friday the 13 th. Movie.

I am trying to bring the “Old Normal” to the “New”. To that end, a “Bachelor Party” is naturally the old tradition that in the new world is not prudent because of all the restrictions, but its intent and legacy can live on.

We are planning a small party of family with close friends at the house, under the limits set for our State of 25 people. Again, this is in order to have that traditional event for him and send him off from Bachelorhood. The other intent of this tradition is to raise money for the couple to get them on the right foot in the next journey, Marriage. We are doing this on October 17th, a stereo typical male Saturday afternoon in the Fall with watching football, outdoor games, beverages and food only in a smaller managed scene.

Because this virus has tarnished some of this journey to date, I wish to make sure the rest of the journey gets off better for them. The inability to have that large group gathering hinders this wish. Help me make this happen for them.

Having attended many of these events,  it's for an asking price that you attend the event, feast and probable get involved with more fund raising proceedings.  You know its for a great cause and you do it for your friend.

I ask you to choose your donation for which you can directly effect this journey. Help these two have that picture perfect scene like one out of a movie, "Love Story", "Casablanca", "Gone with the Wind", "A Star is Born" or "Harry met Sally"...or better yet let help them make their own movie storyline!!!
