Donations of art being sought (by April 27th) for a good charity outdoor event:

Zies Widerman & Malek is hosting a charity kickball tournament and family fun day on Sunday, April 28, 2013, at Max K. Rodes Park in West Melbourne beginning at 10:00 a.m. to benefit Owen Johnson. Owen, was paralyzed in a car accident at the age of 3 and is in need of a functional electrical stimulation (FES) cycle ergometry system (FES Bike) which is a critical medical device needed to maintain Owen’s health. This device costs $25,000.00 and insurance has refused to subsidize the cost, leaving the Johnsons with the full financial burden.

The event will feature live and silent auctions, music, a bounce house, blowup slide, face painting, a SnoCone cart and plenty more entertainment to keep the family busy all day. The Florida Beer Company will be providing the adult beverages (soft drinks and water will also be available) and Charlie & Jake’s Bar-B-Que (Beachside) will be providing the food. Proceeds from both beer and food sales will also benefit Owen. Also, radio personality Timmy V from 107.1FM will be emceeing the event! So, please come on out with your family, meet Owen and enjoy this wonderful event.

Let’s show Owen what this community is all about! If you want to make an in-kind (art), cash, or check donation (please make checks payable to ZWM fbo Dave Johnson), they can be dropped off at:

Zies Widerman & Malek
