We were fortunate enough to attend the Calcutta dinner and auction to benefit Blue Ridge Hospice on September 18th. The three paintings Linda provided for the auction brought in very generous donations for Hospice. The bidding was fast and furious, thank you to all the bidders and congratulations to the winners. It was a wonderful evening all around, we got to spend time with family and friends, and raise money for Hospice. Thanks to Melanie Marks of Wiseman and Associates for all her effort in this event. We then spent Saturday at the fall point to point races to benefit Blue Ridge Hospice. The weather for the spectators was perfect, the drought made the course very hard for the horses. Thanks to Michael Hoffman and Melanie Marks for co-chairing and organizing both of these great events.

We now turn our focus to getting ready for Linda's solo sporting art show in October.
