RSD Fundraiser Prospectus
Novembers exhibition is going to be just as close to our hearts as Pikes Peak is but hopefully much more helpful. November is the National RSD/CRPS Month. Their motto: “Burning For A Cure”. Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy / Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is a nerve disorder that causes immense pain. And unfortunately our friend, intern and fellow artist Lindsay Laxton-Nadeau has the virtually unknown disease.
We have decided to do an art fundraiser for Rocky Mountain CRPS/RSD Foundation to help in getting info out about the disease and raise donations for researching a cure. I have attached a call to entry with more info about the disorder, about the show, and what we are donating. We are also considering doing a bake sale where full profits will go to the foundation. Contact us with any ideas or questions. Drop off will be October 31- November 2nd. The reception will be November 15th 4-8pm.
