Our team name is "Good Deed Doers" from the Wizard of Oz
Vincent Novello received a heart transplant in August 2009 after suffering a major heart attack a few months earlier. He is doing fantastic! That event was a miracle and truly a Gift of Life!!
We are so fortunate to be on the receiving end of such a wonderful gift that we feel it is our honor to give back. So this will be our 7th year participating in the Donor Dash.
Vincent Novello is a very devoted man. He is deeply involved with our church as Lector, Santa Clause, Fathers & Sons Club, and so much more. He lives a life of volunteering and believes that it is by example you create and nurture a good community. He has the natural ability to understand the needs of others, and his commitment and devotion is highly recognized by his family and friends as a true “Good Deed Doer”.
Hence, our team name is "Good Deed Doers" based on the following lines from the Wizard of Oz:
Back where I come from, there are men who do nothing all day but good deeds. They are called phil... er... phil... er... [trying to say "philanthropists"] yes... er... good-deed-doers. And their hearts are no bigger than yours. ...and remember, my sentimental friend, that a heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others.
So in the picture of our tee shirts, you only can see the front, which is the tin man with the initials VN in the heart, but the back of the shirt reads our motto, the Wizard's sentiments to the Tin Man … "A heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others."
