You're all invited

It is less than two weeks until the fundraiser for my friend Bernard's children. I am going to put the information here in case any of you can make it. Thanks to all of you who have donated items for the silent auction!!

Join friends and colleagues of
Bernard Gill


for an evening of
~ music, the arts, entertainment, and a silent auction ~
(suggested donation at the door: $10)

Saturday, October 25
5:00 – 10:00 p.m.

TIES Building, Grand Hall
1667 Snelling Ave. N., St. Paul, MN
(on the southwest corner of Larpenteur and Snelling,
just north of the state fairgrounds)

When longtime NYLC staff member Bernard Gill died last April, his four
children were left with a strong legacy of Bernard’s devoted fathering,
community spirit, and endless humor. Because Bernard wife died of breast cancer
in 1998, the children are in a particularly challenging situation.

Please consider joining colleagues and friends of Bernard’s for this
special event.
All are welcome to stop by and bid on a silent auction item, or stay and
listen to local artists. Food will be served with all proceeds going the
Bernard Gill Children's Fund.
