Ribs N Bids Pancreatic Cancer Research Fundraiser

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.

  1. i still have the earrings i made to donate. i thought i missed the auction last weekend. (brought them to WM a week ago and you were sick?) should i take them by twist today when i go to La Galette? 773-7648 otherwise i can just give them to you for all the work you put into this. if you have pierced ears you will probably want them. i made them with you in mind. i have no idea what they mean but they have "skt" and some other letters stamped on them. :)
