    I pinned a post on Friday above regarding an event that the Marty Lyons foundation is holding on May 7th here on Long Island. Jets Insider.com bought a lane sponsorship and also bought 4 tickets to raffle off.

    I spoke to Marty last week. He knows this site very well and asked for our help. I bragged to him about the regulars on this board and how it would be no problem to see everyone step up and help out. I also told him that we should be able to raise at least $500. (That's only 20 chances sold) and so far since Friday, only Jumba has bought a ticket. This is after a weekend where we broke all previous records for traffic here.

    One word. EMBARASSING.

    I'm asking everyone to step up and buy a chance and show the foundation the type of people that are here. Even if you can't go, buy a chance. It's only $25.00 and it's for a phenominal cause.The ML Foundation is similar to "Make a Wish" where they grant wishes to terminally ill children.

    Come on folks, show everyone what the JI people are made of!!!

    You can make it out to "Jets Insider.com" or the "Marty Lyons Foundation". I'm was going to send send one check for all the money raised in the name of the Fans on this site. But either way is fine.

    Done. Through the magic of Paypal.

    Marty&#39;s a good man. I met him at another fundraiser, for The David Center(Autism). While he was signing an autograph we had a great laugh talking about the time he hit Jim Kelly and was given a 15 yard penalty for "giving him the business".

    Read above. THANKS&#33;&#33;&#33;

    There&#39;s no reason we can&#39;t do this one or two times a year. I think we are a big enough entity and have a big enough following to do some good&#33;
