Dave O T-shirts for funeral to raise funds
« on: September 30, 2008, 05:55:22 PM »
I am working with Walt on this project.  I am in touch with one of Dave O's friends down here in MA who is a screen printer.  I need a head count on how many would want to buy a memorial t-shirt that Walt had posted on yesterday under Funeral Head Count.

Does anyone have any ideas or thoughts on how much they would spend to buy a T-shirt for funds back to Lauren and Josh?  Please let me know any thoughts you might have so that I can relay back to Bob and also how many people would be willing to buy one!

Thanks

Kathy

We'll likely buy 3. With funds going to the family I'd be ok with the $15-$25 range. Of course if you can do $15 you should get a better volume of sales.

To some it may depend on the design, to me I'm in either way.

Hi Deb,

I'm gonna go with the design that Walt chose.  I will copy and past what he has chosen into this thread.  Still working to see if I can get them done in time.

Thanks

hey kathy:
 
i can't capitalize well, as i just had shoulder surgery and i am in a lot of pain.  the tshirt idea was something my dad was going to look into tommorrow.  i thought it would be really cool if we were all in xtra large white tshirts, with on the front, bold letters on top it said "MR. MAXTON", with the picture of him with helmet off sitting on the bike (see attached).
 
then on the back, on top in bold letters, two lines,
"IN MEMORY OF"
"DAVE OWEN"
 
and then the picture of him on the bike in a tuck and racing (see attached).
REST IN PEACE DAVE O

No problem.  I will let you know as soon as I have a definate on all info and time permitting.  Let me know if anyone wants to help with passing them out the day of.  I dont' want this to be a circus outside because for those of you that don't know, this is a small funeral home with not much parking.  I may setup in what we call the old Bradly's Mall which is 3 seconds from the funeral home.  Maybe easier.

I had a call yesterday from Brock Davidson that was looking for the photos as I am the photographer that made most of the shots on the collage on the front page. Brock gave me a whole list of people to send them to and I did. I know Walter was one of them. But if you need anything send me an email directly at

motojournalism@aol.com I have hundreds of pics of Dave O dating back to 2004

Hi everyone,

I want to start of by saying how inspiring it is tooo see the overwhelming amount of responses to helping Lauren, Josh, & Jake.  I'm so proud of the bike community that Dave was involved in and I can see how much everyone appreciated him.

I am happy to announce that after speaking with Bob Mcelroy, he is going to begin the T-Shirt process today.  As soon as he is done with the design, he is going to email me the finished product and I will post it on this thread.

T-shirts are going to cost him $7.25 to make.  If you need a double XL it will cost $8.25 to make.  Anything over this for the t-shirts will be a profit to Lauren, Josh, & Jake.  I realize that alot of you have already put money out of pocket for this fund, but keep in mind that Jake is still young and many more expenses to come for the Owen family who is in need of our help.

The sale of the t-shirts will be $20.00 a piece.  This will profit the Owen family $12.75 a piece after paying the cost of the t-shirt to Bob.

Whoever is coming to the funeral that needs t-shirts this weekend, please email me with subject line coming on Sunday at ksouza26@aol.com, as these t-shirts will need to be processed immediately.  Please email me with how many you would like and how much that you paid into paypal.

Anyone who is not attending the funeral, please be patient as I am going to find out what shipping is and we will go from there.

Please forward all payments to ksouza26@aol.com on paypal.  Again, $20.00

More info will be posted of where we can meet to pass out t-shirts to whom is coming.

Any questions please do not hesitate to email me or call me at 508-822-8154
REST IN PEACE DAVE O
I WILL MISS YOU TERRIBLY!
