This year all of Chad Blakely’s art work is pink in honor of his sister who is battling breast cancer, and he is donating all his proceeds help Heather with her medical bills and missing so much work.

And this update from Connie Norman:
I am selling raffle tickets from my Ceramics Blog for a pair of my black and white salt and pepper shakers ($150) with the quote, “Add Spice to Your Conversation.” Proceeds will go to my friend Heather Blakely Voyles who is battling breast cancer. Heather is only 32 and just had a double mastectomy, hysterectomy, and her biopsy came back positive for malignant lymph nodes. Heather is a second grade teacher and will be missing the rest of the school year.

$1.33 for one ticket and $5.45 for six tickets.

The weird prices for the raffle tickets are to offset the Paypal charges, so when I give Heather the proceeds of the raffle she will won’t have to share with Paypal. The drawing will Dec. 11 at the end of our Among Friend’s Art Show and Sale. If you are buying a Paypal ticket I will fill out a raffle ticket for you for the physical drawing. I will email the winner on December 12.

If you want to help support Heather, but don’t want to purchase raffle tickets on-line, you can come to our Among Friends Art Show and Holiday Sale.
