One of the things I have wanted to do of late is try to find a way to have this great audience I have with you readers to give back in some way. Black Heart Gold Pants, even though they are Our Most Hated Rivals, has their great Touchdowns for Kids promotion they run every year.
Recently I was able to get in contact with the Julian Center here in Indianapolis, a service that serves victims of domestic violence. As part of their fundraising they are hosting the Julian Jam on September 13, the day before Purdue plays Notre Dame. Here is the information:
Have you ever heard of a PUB-CAKE Crawl? Come to Julian Jam and find out what it's all about!
