Thought for the week:

“Chili's is a proud to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, one of the world's premier centers for the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases. As part of a 10-year commitment, Chili's plans to donate $50 million to help St. Jude fight childhood cancer. One of the ways our local Chili’s will help raise the money is by hosting their 2nd Annual Golf Tournament on Saturday, August 29th at the Link’s at Land’s End.
