Brent Burns Memorial Fund Benefit

I can't put into words how touched I've been with the amazing outpouring of love and prayer for the Hock and Burns families. Thank you just doesn't seem to do it justice, but thank you thank you ten times over.

We are having a benefit at Lottie Dottie Boutique in Greenwood, Indiana this Thursday from 6-8 pm. I'm overwhelmed with the amazing vendors, photographers and others that are offering up goods and services to be purchased to go directly to the Brent Burns Memorial Fund.

Here are the vendors that I know of so far that will be there Thursday:

-Lottie Dottie Boutique

Anything that does not sell on Thursday will be organized into an online auction with all proceeds going to the family as well. We are hoping for a nationwide group of amazing vendors and services to be offered for the family, and I think the online auction will be a perfect outlet for that.

  4. I could not make it to the benefit on Thursday but would like to support Melissa and the kids through the online auction. How do I find the online auction site? Please feel free to e-mail me at ladybug7121@hotmail.com. Thanks!

  5. I would also like to support the online auction, Melissa, Brent and the boys stayed at the same resort with us each year in Florida. We were saddened and shocked by the news and have not been able to get any information on memorial funds or how Melissa is doing until now. Thank you.
