Kabuki Syndrome Charity Fundraiser

In response to a request from Puget Sound Knapper member Tim Severn, a number of PSK members donated points to a display case to be raffled in support of a fundraiser for Kabuki Syndrome research and specifically to assisted Kerry Ingram's (aka Stonehunter) daughter Lilly, who is afflicted with this syndrome.

This fundraising raffle raised around $3,000 for Lilly.  Although an Internet Auction, PSK member Jim Smith purchased $100 worth of online raffle tickets and ended up winning the raffle!  He later sold the entire collection to Jim Keffer, who now displays the collection in his shop, scene of weekly Friday Knap-ins and at other PSK events.
