The Auction

With Gratitude from the Friends of Blaine Avery

We are very pleased to announce that through your kindness and many generous donations, the benefit auction for Blaine Avery was a tremendous success. Our final receipts far surpassed our initial goals! We are also grateful to the craftspeople and local businesses, whose creative work and in-kind donations became the heart of the event.

As well, we recognize and appreciate the fact that many of you have also donated to Blaine’s Go Fund Me page. Thank you.

We all have felt the anxiety that comes from the unknown and its uncertainties. Together we have made a more certain future for two and hopefully a difference in the world.

One hundred percent of the funds that were raised will be used to cover Blaine’s and his son’s monthly expenses as well as his medical costs.

If you weren’t able to attend the auction and would still like to contribute, visit Blaine’s GoFundMe page or leave a check for Blaine at the gallery.

Thank you!
