Hello MLP members .. I have an exciting contest to tell you all about !! The MLP Tesla coil winders group is ready to announce it's first project !! The first team of pickup winders to be featured is Wolfetone pickups and WB pickups !! Two winders that by themselves make great pickups , But by combining the musical genius of these two gentlemen I would expect the tones to be nothing short of astonishing !! Since both winders are on the verge of stardom and neither may ever work together again !! These will probably be collectors items !!

The contest proceeds will go to benefit St Judes Childrens Research Hospital ! An amazing hospital with branches all over the USA that helps children with terminal diseases of all sorts , From cancer stricken children to those suffering with terminal blood disorders , etc !! No child that comes to St Judes in need of medical care is refused on the basis of financial inability ( In english ... No patients are turned away because they can't pay !! ) ... That's were this charity contest comes in , Because in order to provide that care to these families in need St Judes needs your donations !!!! Don't think of the money your sending as just entries into a contest to win great pickups , Think of it as money that will help children suffering everyday of their lives and may save some lives !!!!! At the bottom of this page there will be a list of links , In this list will be St Judes website , So you can see for yourselves the great things they do ! As well as the links to the websites of the pickup makers that will be producing excellent pickups for us to raffle off , Please take a look at the websites for both Wolfetone and WB !! Without their generosity and cooperation , None of this would be possible ! Thanks in advance guys !!

Now for how this Charity Contest works , For every $10.00 donation to St Judes Children Hospital , You will recieve 1 entry into the contest ! For every 5 entries made you will recieve 1 free !!! So a donation of $30 gets you 3 entries but a donation of $50 will get you 6 ! There will be 3 sets of pickups donated by Wolfetone & WB pickups .. So that's 3 chances to win !!! All donations should be by Check or Money Order and made payable to ... St Judes Childrens Research Hospital !! Please no cash !! The address to mail all donations / entries is listed below !!
Please remember that this money is going to help alot of people who really need the help !! So please give till it hurts !!!!!

Fantastic idea!!!
I can't take all the credit for this ! It was Wolfe Mcleod who first suggested a charity event in conversations we had and Will from WB and Flick were discussing a way to get winders together and share ideas ! I just took both ideas and and ran with it ! I'm honored to be the Organizer of this charity contest but really it's the winders and you the members that will ultimately make this a great thing !
Please donate now !!! You'll feel better inside for doing it !!!... Please post if you plan on donating to show your other MLP brothers your support of this charity contest !!!

A little bit about St Judes Childrens Research Hospital from their website ! ..St. Jude is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility anywhere. Discoveries made here have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases.

We are where some of today's most gifted researchers are able to do more science, more quickly. Where doctors across the world send their toughest cases and most vulnerable patients. Where no one pays for treatment beyond what is covered by insurance, and those without insurance are never asked to pay. We've built America's 3rd-largest health-care charity, with a model that keeps the costs down and the funds flowing, so the science never stops.



All patients accepted for treatment at St. Jude are treated without regard to the family's ability to pay

Good luck everyone!!! :thumb:
