Default Flies for casting for Recovery - Please Help

Many of you have helped in the past with this and I hope will again.

Casting for Recovery is a national non-profit support and educational organization that serves women who have or have had breast cancer. CFR promotes and supports mental and physical healing while giving these women the opportunity to gather in a beautiful, natural setting and learn fly fishing. http://www.castingforrecovery.org/ The local Casting for Recovery here in Colorado has two retreats one in May and one in September, they are in need of flies for this. If anyone would like to pitch in and donate some time and tie up some flies it would be for a very good cause. I need the flies for the May retreat by April and the September retreat by August.
Here is a list of flies they requested and sizes:
Quote:

All three retreats:

Pheasant Tail Nymph, traditional, beadhead and/or flashback - #16-18
Olive Pheasant Tail Nymph or other BWO nymph - #18-20
Barr’s Blue-Wing Olive Emerger - #16-18
Regular or Sparkle RS-2 - #16-22
Red Copper John - #16-18
Chartruse Copper John - #16-18
Beadhead Soft Hackled Hare’s Ear #16
Beadhead Soft Hackled Pheasant Tail #16
Beadhead Prince #16
Zebra midges - #16-20
Black Beauties - #18

Beadhead, conehead or other weighted dark Wooly Buggers - #6-8 (fished as streamer)
Parachute Adams - #16-20
Griffith’s Gnat - #18-20
Caddis or Stimulators, regular or rubber-legged - #14-16

Additional flies for late May retreat:

Larger dark nymph patterns, #12 or even #10

Additional flies for September and early October retreats:

Green drake nymphs and dries - #12
Red quill nymphs and dries - #12-14
If you are up to tie some flies for this please reply with the pattern you are going to tie and how many you will tie for the cause. As you can see some patterns we will need more then others, but any little bit will help. Thanks! I will PM you an address to mail the flies to if you reply or PM me.

Surprising lack of interest in this, this year. If you are interested and just dont have the time right now, please keep in mind there are multiple retreats this year and I wont need the Sept/Oct flies until the end of August.
Last year we raised 71 dozen flies between the Colorado fishing forums and Cheyenne Mountain TU Chapter. Its starting off a little slow this year.
