Terrarium for K-9 Benefit Auction 6.12.16

The terrarium raised $60.00 at auction
– 100% to SCCSSR.

2016 Cancer Benefit Music Series

Note: Next Saturday (6-18) is the Main Event. I’ll be participating again as a vendor (M2 Labs), selling my custom Botanical Creations. (I’ve got something really special I’m designing for the raffle!!) Great musical line-up and it’s a family-friendly affair – all for an admittance fee of $10. This is a Non-Profit event, folks. Come join us for a good cause!


This Sunday, June 12th: The Quarter Note is hosting the 14th Annual Service, Search & Rescue K-9 Benefit (11am-6pm). The event includes live music, BBQ, auction, Car Show, K-9 demonstrations and other activities. In support of another great cause right here in the Bay Area, I’m donating another one of my botanicals for the auction.

The SCCSSAR is comprised of private citizens who bare the expense of maintaining their dogs. These men and woman are dedicated, devoted, and thrive to offer the best services in the community. They have located hundreds of lost and missing persons.
