    Benefit Auction

    As you may or may not know, FamilyWoodworking recently lost a member. (See this thread if you haven't already.) Brad Hungler was 41 when he died suddenly March 27, and a fund has been established to help pay for the education of his 12-year-old daughter Michelle.

    Brad had only recently fallen into the Vortex of woodturning, so I thought it would be appropriate to honor him and help his daughter by offering one of my humble turned pieces for auction, with 100% of the proceeds going to the Michelle Hungler Education Fund. It just seemed like the Family thing to do. In order to maximize the exposure and potential sale price, I've listed the piece on eBay. It is item #180228606626. Or, you can search eBay for "Hungler" and you'll find it, too.

    If you're interested in helping out by bidding, or even if you just want to see the piece being auctioned, go check it out. I also urge any of you other members to do something similar if you're so inclined, or simply send a donation to the fund:

    Michelle Hungler Education Fund, c/o St. Augustine School, 1839 Euclid Ave., Covington, KY 41014.

    Thanks.

    Very Generous Vaughn ,
    Hopefully such a nice piece will generate a hefty price.

    Toni, I don't know if the fund has a PayPal account set up. If you'd like me to, I can accept a donation from you via my account, and simply add it to the check that I send to the fund after the auction. Send me a PM if you're interested in that approach.

    Just a little challenge for anyone interested.

    I've bid on the auction, and win or lose, my highest bid, I'll be donating to the fund.

    Cheers!

    My initial bid for a piece - sight unseen - was $50.00. I'll put that into the fund and send Vaughn a check. Maybe Larry will meet his bid too. How about it, Larry?

    You Know what? I'll bet anything given would help, and that goes for the lurkers too! Make yourself feel better, send a buck ! Familywoodworking is about civility and sharing, at least that's my take on it, but on this one, you don't have to be a member to help out.
