Long time friends of the shop Jenny & Ben Colen have been on a 2+ year long rollercoaster ride enduring Jenny's battle with non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Although her recent bone marrow transplant has been well received, the road to recovery is a long and difficult one, made especially more difficult after being laid off and losing health insurance in the process.
When our friends are in need, we help them out, and we're reaching out to our extended network of friends and family to help the Colen's in their time of need.
A Go Fund Me campaign has been set up to help in alleviating some of the financial burden and stress that comes with a long aggressive illness, treatment and recovery period.
In addition to this online campaign, some friends have come together to host a fundraiser event this Sunday August 8th at Biddy Early's Pub on Pearl St. in Downtown Boston.
From 3PM-2AM there will be a raffle and silent auction filled with all types of collectible goodies including tons of autographed boards, artwork, Nike SB Dunks, and much much more.
Peep the flyer below and a sample of a few of the items we donated. Hope to see y'all there!
