Dwight Brill Celebration of Life Silent Auction and Dinner

Bennett was released from the hospital on Feb 7,2012.  There’s been so much to write about in the 2 weeks since my last post, and I’ll catch up soon.  In the mean time we’d like to invite everyone that lives in Breckenridge to the Dwight Brill Celebration of Life SilentAuction and Dinner.  
The fund was conceived in 2000, inspired by the extensive financial, logistical and emotional support provided to the Brill family during Dwight's battle with cancer. The Celebration of Life aims to carry on this spirit of giving by providing emergency support services to Ski resort employees in times of medical need. Since its inception, employees have raised more than $157,000 for the fund. As of now, it has helped 83 employees with major medical expenses and some 300 employees with smaller amounts of aid.  Bennett is one of the recipients and we are very grateful to the foundation. For more info on the fundraiser tonight go here

We drove up to Breck last night and stopped by the Whales Tail for a quick visit and great meal.  Tonight we’ll stop by the Dwight Brill fundraiser and then visit friends and play some rousing board games.  Tomorrow is a work day…gathering Bennett’s belongings. 

I was in Savannah last weekend for the Bennett Benefit at Southern Pines.  It was fantastic and we cannot thank those that helped out enough.  I will write about it in more detail in the next blog, but I just want Kelly Nelson rocks.  So does everyone else involved, but it wouldn’t have happened without her phenomenal organizational skills and ability to ask for favors.To see some photos from the fundraiser check out this link

Bennett and I can’t wait to get to the warm GA sunshine.  The warm weather will do his broken bones good, and he is OVER the ice.  We’ll be flying home on Valentine’s Day.  Tybee here we come!
