As some of my readers know, my sister-in-law's husband has been diagnosed with squamous cell cancer of the throat, and is currently undergoing both chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Mitch and Sue both have been working two jobs in order to keep their little family afloat, and the medical bills have put a serious strain on their ability to cope - the current economy certainly isn't helping!

Mitch is a wonderful husband and father, a super chaperone to his son's scouting troop, and is a very entertaining guy to talk to. In fact, we want to give you a chance to meet him, and to help his family out at this difficult time in their lives... and to have a great time, yourself, in the process.

If you live near the Twin Cities, you are cordially invited to join us at the Mitch Carlson Benefit Event on Oct. 18. There will be a Car Show, an all-you-can-eat Spaghetti Dinner, a silent auction (at which there will be many wonderful handcrafted items, of course, along with wine baskets, jewelry, sports & game equipment, fashion items, books, soaps and lotions, and much more), an until-the-kegs-run-out Beer Bust, Karaoke, and a Raffle for a Ford Explorer Sport. It's going to be great fun!

Information on schedule, location, cost, items up for auction, and of course the raffle prize, can all be found here.

There is also still time to donate items for the auction, if you wish to do so - please leave a comment here or contact me at ravensegge at gmail dot com (adjust the address with the usual symbols; I love my readers but am not so fond of spammers!)

I hope to see you there!

Best wishes to Mitch and his family. I hope the benefit is a great success and that his treatments wipe out the cancer, too.
