It's the fourth annual MILAN MAIN STREET MARATHON FUNdraiser.
We asked all of you to cast your votes and once they were tallied the clear winner for this year's binge-watching marathon was THE GOLDEN GIRLS.
We will binge watch all seven season non-stop from Wednesday, August 9 through Saturday, August 12 from the Main Street and Milan Chamber offices in downtown Milan.
This year, we've added a fundraising partner...the Milan Area Chamber. The Chamber and Main Street can honestly say that together we've "travelled down the road and back again." So, it makes perfect sense to partner together for The Golden Girls Marathon.
Board and staff members from Milan Main Street and the Milan Chamber will go live on Facebook throughout the marathon (harkening back to the days of the old-fashioned telethon). Special guests, fun challenges, a birthday celebration, and live entertainment will keep things lively. We will also host a variety of fun Golden Girls-themed events in Tolan Square over the 4-day long marathon.
Stay tuned for a schedule of events including hourly fundraising challenges, interactive activities, and specials guests.
Pledge - $10
Milan Main Street and Milan Area Chamber board and staff members will take turns watching episodes that will play 24/7 from their downtown offices during the 4-days long marathon. Each member has been challenged to secure $200 in pledges for their participation.
We love fun and good-natured competition so we are already fired up to see who will reach their goal first and which organization will secure the most pledges.
Each pledge is just $10. Make a pledge to one or more of our very own "Golden Girls" by clicking on their image below and we promise to "THANK YOU FOR BEING A FRIEND."
