Benefit last night

Last night we went to a benefit for one of the firefighters at Darlene's work - his perfectly healthy 6 year-old stepson was diagnosed in April with terminal brain cancer. It is so sad - they gave him just 6 months to 2 years to live. Here is the website http://www.caringbridge.org/cb/inputSiteName.do?method=search&siteName=colefisher - if you read the journal it gives updates on his condition. He was there last night, and the poor little guy was in a wheelchair and had to wear a mask. It was heart-wrenching.

The benefit had a silent auction, and Jason & I bid on & won this awesome picture from 1965. It's the arch before the final piece was put in and in the foreground is the old Busch Stadium when it was under construction. It's going to be perfect in our study/hearth room. THEN, in the raffle, Jason won a prize that made his night (actually, probably his year): a big golf bag, a golf club, a case of beer, 2 sets of 4 rounds of golf (2 different courses) and I think some other stuff. He's was ecstatic!

Hopefully they raised a lot of money to help the family out.
