As some of you are aware who know me in person, my mother passed away from pancreatic cancer in 1991. Since then, and with no special effort of my own, I have met many family members of pancreatic cancer patients. One such person asked me if I wanted to help out with a fundraiser for research and patient support. Without much idea of what I was getting myself into, I said yes.
On Saturday, November 14, a fundraiser for research and assistance to patients of pancreatic cancer will be held at Plymouth Congregational Church in Wichita, Kansas. The doors will open at 5:30, and award-winning BBQ will be served. From 6-7:30 a silent auction will provide more opportunities to not only support pancreatic cancer research but also to enjoy (and take home!) the handiwork of local artisans.
Below is just a sampling of the items up for bid.
More information and photos of auction items are on the Ribs n Bids blog. For now, here is the poster for the fundraiser:
