There is a fundraiser planned for Nick on May 19, 2019, created by the son of one of my long time friends. David Kaplan Perkins (KP) decided about 6 months ago that he wanted to make a difference in someones life and we are the very lucky recipients of this heart felt movement.

The event will be at Uncommon Ground in Edgewater from 1-3pm
There will be entertainment and we will be showcasing art by Nick that can be bid on as a silent auction.
