Benefit for Micah Perry!

Thanks to everyone who came out last night to support our neighbor, Micah Perry of HELD Belts. People made off with some treasures in the silent auction--- thank you to the local businesses that contributed merchandise and gift certificates for the cause!!

There is still a way to contribute to Micah's ballooning health care expenses. The 10 for 10 Challenge means you find ten people to donate 10 bucks, knocking out a cool $100 without breaking the bank! Contributions can be made at HELD Belts, Micah's store at the foot of the St Johns Bridge. Check out his website

Thank you to Salty Teacup, Lilytoad, The Parlour, Body Bistro, The Crystal Cathedral, Housefarm, St Johns Booksellers, the Proper Family, Geare Music and Poppy Massage for donating items to the silent auction.

Be Well, Do Good Work, and Keep in Touch!
