Carson Leslie Foundation Auction

Hello friends! Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and wonderful New Year!

Here is an opportunity to get some great stuff (including Ellen VT artwork!) while helping raise money for an awesome cause. Tomorrow evening is the 5th Annual Sunny Place Shindig that raises money for the Carson Leslie Foundation. My mom and Carson’s mom were/are great friends and I was good friends with Carson’s older brother when I was younger. Tragically, Carson died of cancer a few years ago while still in his teens. The Carson Leslie Foundation was born out of this tragedy and now raises money for pediatric cancer research.

I encourage you to check out their Facebook Page and their website. You can read Carson’s story here. So how can you get involved? Like I said, tomorrow evening is their 5th annual fundraiser and auction for pediatric cancer research. This is their first year that you can bid on items online! There are a TON of awesome items on which to bid. You can bid via text message or by smartphone. You can register to bid here. Please consider supporting this foundation and their great cause…”because kids can’t fight cancer alone.”

Here is the painting of mine that you can bid on:

Have a great weekend!
