Auction Benefit for Jane Lee
Feb 14, 2015 All Day
On Valentine's Day 2015 ( February 14,2015) Scott Kerns and I will be putting on an auction for our friend Jane Lee. 2015 has been a very hard and trying time for Jane. She endured the passing of not 1 but 3 deaths of close family members. Jane is a CNA at Carmel Manor in Ft Thomas and is solely responsible for the cost of these funerals expenses. After paying her own living expenses she doesn't have much of anything going to this purpose.
With our Hopes, Prayers, and donations from respectable companies like yours we will get donations, ( monetary at otherwise) we can ease this burden that Jane has to bear. Any donation that are not monetary will be added to this auction. On Saturday these items will be up for bid. All bidding will cease at 8PM. Whoever holds the highest bid at that time will win that donation. All monies collected will be given to Jane Lee.
Feel free to call about donation or questions about this fundraiser Scott Kerns @ 859-415-9718 or myself @ 859-415-1418.
On behalf of Jane Lee and her family.. Thank you and God bless
