Harry's Freakin Fabulous Fund Raiser

A little over 2 1/2 weeks ago, the lovely Harry Benenson was struck by a car by a careless driver while on the sidewalk with his mother and baby sister. Harry sustained injuries, including skull fractures. Harry was rushed to ICU where he spent several days in a coma and received an amazing amount of love and support from friends and family. Harry woke up, and, since then, has managed to make great strides towards recovery.

 His personality is 100% present and is as charming as ever. He continues to put smiles on the faces of those he encounters.

Harry has received wonderful care from therapists, neurologists, nurses, doctors, mom, dad, and little Rosemary. They all continue to work on understanding what brain damage may be present.

We, the friends of this wonderful family - Jessie Benenson, Ian Terrell, Rosemary, and Harry - want to do whatever we can to help the family focus on the love and kindness they share instead of the stress of the bills and missed work that the real world has waiting. Because of this, local artists, craft artists, musicians, and more to come have donated pieces of work, jewelry, ceramics to be sold with 100% of the proceeds going to the wonderful family.

SO - - - please join us on Saturday, August 25th from 1 PM - 8 PM at the Lucky Lab on 1945 Northwest Quimby in Portland for a lovely fundraiser event for Harry.

It is sure to be fun and is certainly for a wonderful cause.

If you can not attend but would like to donate money, you can visit any US Bank and give the name Harry Benenson.
