Ari Ziegler

Hi all! This will be my fifth time running in the Miami Half Marathon with Team Yachad, meaning that my friends and family will have given a staggering $15,000 dollars in support to this amazing organization.

Those who've donated before know that I usually take on some sort of creative challenge given by my donors, whether its beard coloring, cartoons, sculptures, etc. This year, I won't have time for all of that but to honor my hitting $15,000 dollars in support, all of this year's donors will be invited to an exclusive Donor BBQ at my home during the Spring of 2019 (Exact Date TBD).

As some of you may know, I recently won a grand prize in a Chinese Auction supporting NY NCSY. The grand prize was a freezer full of meat. (I know, it's awesome.) Since winning it, I figured that I could turn that freezer full of meat into another opportunity to raise charity for a good cause.

Therefore, come Spring, we'll be emptying the freezer and throwing a huge BBQ for all my donors. Chili, burgers, steaks, ribs, you name it. All you need to do is donate $50+ and you're invited. Not only that, but you can leave the name of your favorite BBQ dish/food as a comment with your donation and we'll do our best to have it there!

Thanks so much for your continued support over the years! Tizku l'mitzvot!
