Thank You WDCABBC!!!! Our club raised $5,200 this season for Toys for Tots!! $2,600 each will go to Toys for Tots in DC and Cleveland. We exceeded last years total by $2,100! Thanks for your generosity and for being the best sports fans around. The list of lucky raffle winners can be found here.
The Browns take on the Ravens this week in Cleveland at 1pm. Come out to your favorite viewing site and cheer for our Browns. I hope that everyone has a Merry Christmas and a wonderful Holiday season.
If you became a member of our club just this season or renewed your membership, you helped a child! If you purchased a T-shirt, you helped a child! If you purchased raffle tickets, you helped a child!
Thank you also to all of our volunteers, who collected memberships and sold T-shirts and raffle tickets. They make our club run smoothly and allow us to raise money for a good cause while we watch our beloved Browns play each week.
All of our viewing sites will be open as the Browns face the Cardinals on the road tomorrow. Just a reminder that Kickoff is at 4:05 pm. Our 2019 Toys for Tots Charity Raffle will take place at Fado after the game is over. For those attending at Fado, you will have an opportunity to buy some last minute raffle tickets!
The Browns face another Division foe this week and look to bounce back from a disappointing performance against the Steelers. If the Browns can win the next two games, they will creep back to 7-7 with two games left in the season. So come to one of our viewing sites and cheer on our Browns to victory!!
This is the last week for fans at Blackfinn, Eclipse and Ugly Mug to buy tickets for our 2019 Charity raffle. Don’t miss out on your chance at winning some great prizes and helping underprivileged kids in DC and Cleveland have a wonderful Christmas. The raffle drawing is December 15th at Fado and the winner does not need to be present.
Fins and Wins
While the Browns have not lived up to the pre-season hype, they have strung together two home wins in a row. Come to one of our viewing sites and watch our team extend that winning streak to three games by beating the Miami Dolphins.
We are still selling raffle tickets to raise money for Toys for Tots. The prizes are shown here. Talk to your site coordinator about buying tickets. Remember the winner does not need to be present and you select the prize(s) that your tickets go towards.
Speaking of site coordinators, our club would not exist without our great volunteers. That includes our site coordinators: Dan, David and Kristen P. and our VP and membership chairperson, Kristen M. They donate their time and energy so that you have a great viewing experience. Please thank them for all that they do for our club. I’d also like to thank our members that have pitched in: Denise, Sarah and Sean. We would not have all of the great viewing sites that we have without our volunteers.
We can always use more people to help out. Our club could use a social events coordinator to plan group outings to Indians and Cavs games, off-season banquet or cookout, etc. If interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This weekend as the Browns face the Denver Broncos, we will kickoff our annual Charity Raffle. Raffle tickets cost only $2 each or 3 for $5. The raffle will be held on Sunday, December 15th at Fado and the winner does not need to be present. Our proceeds go to Toys for Tots in DC and in Cleveland. Check out our awesome prize packages here. So let’s raise some money for Toys for Tots and watch our Browns start to turn this season around!
So the Browns are facing the New England Patriots and the game is on local TV at 4:25 PM. This is your time to prove that you are a true Browns fan! This is NOT the time for you to sink into your own sofa at home. When the going gets tough, real Browns fans show up. So make your way to your favorite WDCABBC viewing site this Sunday. Our hosts count on us to be there in full force, so let’s show them what Browns fans are made of!
Neil, WDCABBC President
The Browns have another tough road game on Monday with a chance to stay in first place in our Division. It’s been a long time since I could mention the Browns and first place in the same sentence! Are you going to stay home or come out to Blackfinn or Fado and cheer on our Browns with your fellow WDCABBC members? As one of our members told me, “it’s really hard to high five yourself.” So show up and win some mustard and watch our Browns defeat the 49ers.
This week the Browns face their first test within our Division. This will be a very tough game, with the Ravens having home field advantage. However, the Washington DC Area Browns Backers will have Home Bar Advantage. Lets show our pride in our Cleveland Browns and fill up our viewing sites. I know some of our members will be in Baltimore supporting the Browns in person, but that makes it even more important that YOU show up at on Sunday!!
We are still accepting memberships either in person or online. Our T-shirts are selling fast and we have a limited number left. If we don’t have your size, ask your site coordinator about how to get your T-shirt in a second order.
Three reasons for you to NOT stay home on Sunday night! Come to one of our four viewing sites and watch the Browns take on the Los Angeles Rams. We will actually have trivia prizes at Fado and Blackfinn. Fado will also be featuring Great Lakes Joe Thomas Kolsch beer on tap. We will need all hands on deck to cheer for our Browns in this tough match up.
Neil (WDCABBC President)
Big News! Starting THIS SUNDAY, the Great Lakes Brewing Company’s Joe Thomas Kolsch beer will be on tap at Fado. This will only be available for a limited time so it’s a good reason to come on out for the later game this weekend. Due to limited distribution, it will only be available at Fado. No other viewing sites will have it. GO BROWNS!!!
