  • Remember The Miners Announces the Coal Club

    Posted on by rtmuser

    Remember The Miners is excited to announce the creation of the Coal Club, a membership-driven community sustaining the philanthropic causes of Remember The Miners.

    The Coal Club was designed for reporters of the organization to make a small, but extremely meaningful, contribution to Remember The Miners at the individual giving level. A $25 donation includes induction into the Coal Club, as well as a welcome pack including a car magnet, T-shirt featuring the Remember The Miners Logo, “America’s Real Source of Energy,” and a Huggins Horrible Hankie, emblazoned with the face of Remember The Miners Honorable Chairman Coach Bob Huggins.

    Proceeds from Coal Club memberships will go towards the Scholars Program. The Remember The Miners Scholars Program was created in 2011 to provide financial aid to miners, dependents of miners, and students pursuing higher education in the mining industry. Remember The Miners and the West Virginia Coal Foundation created the Scholars Program to support families of the West Virginia mining community. Awardees of the scholarship are miners, dependents of miners, or students pursuing higher education in the mining industry.

    “We are excited to continue to grow our grassroots network of citizen activists who support the men and women of the coal industry,” began Jason Parsons, President of Remember The Miners. “By joining our network of miners, community leaders, and businesses, a small investment in the work of Remember The Miners will go a long way. The grassroots members of the Coal Club are very important to continuing the work we are doing in telling the story of America’s real source of energy.”

    Posted on by rtmuser

    Honorary Chairman of Remember The Miners Coach Bob Huggins is participating in the Infiniti Coaches Charity Challenge. In partnership with NCAA and ESPN, this charitable program will donate $100,000 to a winning coach towards his charity of choice. Coach Huggins is the WVU Men’s Basketball coach and is one of 48 coaches participating in this challenge.

    The winner will be determined ultimately by fan participation. Starting January 18th, polls have been open online for fans to cast their vote up to once a day. After the first six weeks, four brackets of 12 coaches will be pitted against each other, with winners from each group advancing to semi-finals in week seven and finals in week eight. The winning coach will be announced March 9th. All 48 coaches’ charities will receive at least $5,000 from Infiniti.

    Remember The Miners has partnered with Coach Huggins on many occasions. In 2011, the Bob Huggins Tailgate was created as a Remember The Miners signature event. The Fish Fry raised funds for the Scholars Program, as well as the Norma Mae Huggins Cancer Research Endowment Fund, created by Coach Huggins in honor of his late mother. More recently in January 2012, Coach Huggins hosted the Bob Huggins Tailgate Presented by Little General, which raised funds for these two charities as well.

    “We’re excited for our Honorary Chairman to participate in the charity challenge,” began Jason Parsons, Director of Remember The Miners. “Coach Huggins continually elevates the story of the coal miner at the national level, and widespread support of Remember The Miners continues to grow because of it.”

    Posted on by rtmuser

    Remember The Miners is excited to announce the 2nd Annual Bob Huggins Tailgate Presented by Little General. The tailgate will be held December 4th at the Moose Lodge in Charleston, WV, beginning at 7 PM.

    To purchase tickets, contact Cam Payne at cam(at)remembertheminers(dot)org.

    The 1st Annual Bob Huggins Tailgate was held January 17th this year. The inaugural event benefited the Norma Mae Huggins Cancer Research Endowment Fund, named in honor of WVU Coach Bob Huggins’ late mother, Norma Mae, as well as the Remember The Miners Scholars Program. Coach Huggins serves as Honorary Chairman to Remember The Miners, and has long been a supporter of the hard work of the men and women of the coal mining industry.

    The Remember The Miners Scholars Program was created in 2011 to provide financial aid to miners, dependents of miners, and students pursuing higher education in the mining industry. Scholarships are awarded twice annually during spring and fall semesters. In its first year, the Scholars Program awarded $50,000. Applications to the Fall 2012 Scholars Program are open now and can be found here.

    The 2nd Annual Bob Huggins Tailgate Presented by Little General will also serve as a canned food and toy drive for the Southern West Virginia Christmas Outreach Program. Guests are encouraged to bring items to donate in addition to partaking in the festivities of the evening.

    “The 2nd annual tailgate will be a great time to celebrate the miners of West Virginia and raise funds for two causes very important to me,” began Coach Huggins. “It’s wonderful to see our annual events grow each year to support our efforts in improving the lives of members of our community.”

    Coach Huggins has been an integral part of fundraising with Remember The Miners. In 2010, the Bob Huggins Fish Fry was held at the Waterfront Place Hotel in Morgantown, and the 2nd Annual Bob Huggins Fish Fry was held this year on August 31st. Like the Bob Huggins Tailgate, the Fish Fry raised funds and brought awareness to miners through the appearance of VIPs like Randy Moss and NBA players. This year’s tailgate will be held the night before the highly spirited game of WVU-Marshall, and will feature a concert performance from local musical talent.

    “The 2nd Annual Bob Huggins Tailgate will be a night to celebrate all that’s wonderful about West Virginia,” added Jason Parsons, President of Remember The Miners. “We encourage everyone to come join us the night of December 4th to raise funds for both of these important causes while enjoying a wonderful evening with some of the state’s most notable supporters.”

    This event is sure to sell out. Sponsorship opportunities are available. Contact Cam Payne, VP of Operations, at cam(at)remembertheminers(dot)org for more information.
