Mardi teamed up with  Turtle Bay again,  to raise money and awareness for Alzheimers. The fund raiser consisted of  individual raffles every hour, on the hour. Great prizes were donated from friends and local business, as well as some national organizations. The big prize of the day was a signed Jimmy Buffet guitar which was awarded at the end of the day.

“Mardi does an incredible job getting donations and hustling the raffle tickets. She works at the fund raiser all year. It has grown and raised more money  each year we have done it. We are proud to work with her on this” said Turtle Bay owner  Brad Bohannan

The event has grown each of its four years. Sunday’s fund raiser was a great success raising nearly $4000 for the charity. It is not too late to donate to the Mardi/Turtle Bay team page. Please go to this link and add to the total here.

“Thanks to everyone who helped in any way with our Alzheimers event. I’m amazed at the outpouring of love! The day flew by because of the laughter and caring from all of the Turtle Bay community. It really does take a village and we have a great one. See ya next year!” added Johnson.

Reality TV stars will gather in multitude on April 11, including Spirits on Bourbon owners Brad Bohannan and Steve Smith, in Temecula, California for the Reality Rally games to help raise funds for breast cancer awareness.

Bohannan and Smith will join “Survivor: Gabon” star Gillian Larson and 120 reality TV stars from 39 shows to compete in a series of Rally events in Old Town Temecula. Larson founded Reality Rally in 2011.

Reality Rally is a four hour “Amazing Race” style game, where teams dash throughout Old Town Temecula, competing in various challenges and exercises for the sole purpose of bragging rights.

Most importantly, the event raises thousands of dollars and community awareness for Michelle’s Place for Breast Cancer Resource Center. This year’s Reality Rally is in its fourth year and will be held April 11, 12, and 13.

Larson set a fundraising goal of $25,000. If reached, she will shave her head on the steps of City Hall before the start of the Reality Rally game and then walk the red carpet event that evening at South Coast Winery.

Together, Bohannan and Smith have raised over $4,000.

“Like so many women, I feel that my hair is a large part of my identity as it has become my TV Survivor Star identity,” Larson said. “The loss of hair as a side effect of cancer treatment can be so traumatic. In a demonstration of solidarity for the millions of people battling cancer, I will shave my head when we reach $25,000. This will be a life changing moment for me and the funds I raise will be a life prolonging moment for many.”

Anybody can participate in Reality Rally. Teams can consist of three family members, co-workers and/or friends, age 16 and over. Anyone under 18 will require a parent or legal guardian on the same team. Registration is $50.00 per participant and closes on April 5. Complete rally and fundraising information is available at www.realityrally.com.
