An Auction for National Lupus Foundation raised over $4,000

On March 24,  Maxine Hodges, owner of the Scrapbook Page and Fiskateer of the Year 2009, held a charity crop in Barboursville, WV.

This benefit crop was attended by fiskateers from 5 states .  The banquet hall was decorated like an orange camp.  A tent and fake campfire was only one of several photo ops!  Everyone  had fun cropping, eating, and giving out many door prizes.



We then had a charity auction with the benefits going to the National Lupus Foundation of America. We were honored to have two creations that were made with Graphic 45 products from Candy Rosenberg among the items on the auction block. 


These items helped us to raise over $4,000.00. The crop is held in honor of my brother in law, Jarrell Bledsoe, who died from this disease in 2007.  I like to think even if I can't help him, perhaps it will help to find a cure for this debilitating disease.  

Thank you Maxine, for asking Graphic45 to be a part of this event!

Happy Crafting,
Candy Rosenberg
