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!

have three locations...
|See the sneakers hiding out above the fireplace?|

|HUGE sign made completely out of JDRF sneakers. Love it!|
|Some JDRF love, with a side of Nebraska love, too.|
Great photos! Very cool the way they decorated with the sneakers! Thanks for posting these :)ReplyDelete
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. :-)ReplyDelete
