How Could You Not Love This Place?

A and I went to dinner at my favorite local restaurant tonight, Lazlo's.  It was delicious, but that's not the point I want to make here.  They are a local corporate sponsor for the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes, and I was in awe of how many of those JDRF sneakers they had around.  I couldn't even take pictures of all of them (seriously, they were EVERYWHERE!) without getting weird looks, but here are a few.  Seriously, if you're ever in Lincoln or Omaha, Nebraska, please support these guys.  Their fundraising goal this year for JDRF is $20,000.  Wow.  I'll bet they can do it, too.  You'll even notice on their "In The Community" page, JDRF is listed first. 

I had to do it - I pulled a manager aside before we left and thanked him for all they're doing for JDRF.  I told him I've had type 1 since I was 6, and to see this kind of support is really heart-warming.  He gave a very enthusiastic "Yes!" when I asked if I could put up some pictures on my blog, too.  Ha!


$20,000 is a ginormous goal to have, when you only
have three locations...


See the sneakers hiding out above the fireplace?


Flyer for the local Walk - had one posted on
every door!


HUGE sign made completely out of JDRF sneakers.  Love it!


Some JDRF love, with a side of Nebraska love, too.

  2. Wow! That's awesome! I too love how they decorated with them, and didn't just display them normally. Seems extra cool because they made designs with them. :-)
