Anyone who’s known me long, or has been following my work, knows how important Wade Belak was to me. More than a hockey player, more than a brother firefighter, he was a friend. I have been trying to come up with a way to honor him since last summer’s news.
In an effort to honor Wade, and remind Jennifer, Andie Marie and Alex we still love and support them, I am launching my Wade Belak memorial fund drive. I want to raise money for the Andie and Alex Belak Scholarship Fund.
Here are the details: I am going to be selling blue and gold Wristbands. The wrist bands will say Wade Belak #3 and Heaven Got a Lot Tougher. I will be selling the Wristbands for $5.00 and also accepting pre-orders (to help fund the production and shipping costs.) The bands will then be available via this site, as well as at different Predators home games I am attending. In addition to the bands, there will be some autographed Predators items. These will range from Autographed Preds Presses to 3 VERY Special Pucks. More details on those pucks will be coming at a later time.
Donations and pre-orders can be made via Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also donate directly to the fund: The Andie and Alex Belak Scholarship Fund. Checks may be made payable to Woodmont Christian Church/Belak (3601 Hillsboro Pike, Nashville, TN 37215
By taking the pre-orders, 100% of proceeds will go Directly to the Scholarship Fund.
— To pre-order please send me an email with your name and contact info,as well as 5.00 per wristband via paypal. That way when the wristbands come in, I can make sure to get them to you.

UPDATE 2/16/12- 8:00pm
I am completely Overwhelmed at the response so far. Thank You all so much! I will try to figure out a good way to mail wristbands to anyone interested, I am hoping to have the first 300 ordered within 24 hours. Should be delivered here in Nashville in about 2 weeks. We Will go from there to see how to best mail them.
I received the confirmation this morning. The wristbands are in production. I am still taking pre-orders and donations online. Still working on most cost effective way to ship the bands. Thank you all again for your support. Keep checking back to bigbenpreds.section303.com for more info.
