Silent Auction Cocktail Party

to benefit Rob Grogan

poster-Toast-of-Town-194x300

On September 22nd, "Toast of the Town," a live and silent auction cocktail party at the Olde Silk Mill will be taking place from 6 to 9 p.m.

As many of you may know, Rob Grogan, the editor of Front Porch Fredericksburg, has been diagnosed with Carcinoid Cancer. It is a rare form of cancer with lengthy and expensive treatment options. "Rob's Army" has been raising funds to help offset these costs not covered by insurance.

Artist Betsy Glassie (by donating her painting "Perhaps Bonnard Will Come" 40x30 oil on canvas, for the Silent Auction), and The Olde Silk Mill Inn owners, Ed & Anna Whelan (by donating their facility), have kicked off what promises to be the most exciting, fun, and must-attend event of the season.

Pouches' Community Corner

St Baldrick’s Foundation began in 2000 over a simple idea – shave a colleague’s beautiful hair while also raising money for kids with cancer. And now this Foundation has funded over $200 million worth of research to cure pediatric
cancer. In 2015, the FDA approved a treatment that offers a higher chance of a cure for high-risk neuroblastoma patients because of that research.
