In Memory of Jackie Towns 

Post#1 » by KGdaBom » Tue Apr 14, 2020 10:14 pm

I have an idea and I'm clueless how to do it, but maybe we as a board could do something in her memory. Send some flowers or make a donation to COVID19 relief efforts. Could somebody who knows how to organize these things help? We could all pitch in $5-10-25 whatever and maybe come up with a couple hundred bucks. Would one of those fund me things work? Just as a way to show we do care.

You should try to take this to twitter and get in contact with someone like Jeff Munneke who is the VP of Fan Experience. You'll find more people to contribute as well.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I do want it to be from the RealGM Wolves Board.

I don't know how to either but I'm willing to contribute. I have felt awful about it, follow KAT since he has been with us and he's such a warm guy. Deveasting to see this happen. I don;t think he will ever be the same, any little light when can bring to that family would help.

In. I think donation to relief efforts or similar would be most impactful.

I left a voicemail with Jeff Munneke. Ball is in his court now.

Munneke didn't call me back and now I suspect it will be Monday at the soonest.

Munneke never got back to me. I'm not sure if it's too late to do anything or not.

Hmmm. It's a tough situation. Maybe we can do something whenever the season comes back. Don't know how but maybe it will be easier to arrange something then.

I don't know how to act best now.
Maybe indeed some kind of donation to honor her or some kind of social media thing, where we post pics of our international fanbase with some words for KAT or something (along with a donation maybe).
But yeah maybe it's kind of too late now.

RIP again for KAT's Mom on Mothers Day. Still so sad for KAT and his family.
