Wow what a turn out. Most know that LJ’s Pizza is one of Tra’s favorite restaurants in the valley, and Clay was nice enough to allow us to hold a fundraiser on Tra’s behalf. Clay donated a large portion of the proceeds from this event to Tra and his family to help with is chemo treatments.
Tra’ was diagoned with Squamous Cell cancer on his throat and neck on December 22, 2011. Tra’ has complete faith in God and knows he has a plan.
We told Clay to plan for a big group, after all this is Tra Bell were talking about. So he planned for about roughly 70 people and 20 pizzas to be made. As you can see from the pictures below twice that many people turned out. When all was said and done Clay cooked up 65 pizzas for the 142 attendees to the fundraiser. This is in addition to the 9 loafs of garlic bread and the 20 pizzas that were purchased for take home.
Thanks to Clay for hosting this event, combining peoples love for Tra and their love for LJ’s Pizza made for one heck of an event. Thanks Troy for putting this thing together and for allowing your H2 to be used as a platform to take pictures of the large crowd.
Check out pictures of the event below. Following the pictures you can see Tra’s thank you to everyone that attended.
After the event, Tra had this to say in gratitude:
“Thank you EVERYONE who showed up last night to the LJ’s pizza party fundraiser! Thank you Troy for putting it together and Clay at LJ’s Pizza for hosting it! What an incredible night of family, friends, fundraising & food! My family & I thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for all your LOVE, SUPPORT & PRAYERS! I was AMAZED, once again, at the LOVING, GENEROUS, SELFLESS people God has put in my life! May God bless you all for the LOVE you’ve shared with my family & I! These three remain: FAITH, HOPE and LOVE. But the greatest of these is LOVE! 1 Corinthians 13:13”
