Sharing From the Heart to benefit Silas' Saga
Camden — On Saturday, March 8, from 1 to 3 p.m., the Second Annual Sharing from the Heart Silent Auction to benefit Silas’ Saga, takes place at the First Congregational Church in Camden, 55 Elm St.
The event is free and open to the public, and includes a silent auction filled with donated items from the area, local artists, restaurants, gift baskets and more.
Three-year-old Silas Brown of Buxton was diagnosed with Spastic Quadriplegia Cerebral Palsy shortly after birth and faces secondary complications including microcephaly, epilepsy and tracheal malaysia. He is fed a Ketogenic diet through a J tube, as well as several medicines three times a day, and is non-verbal and non-ambulatory. Despite these challenges, Silas, the son of Matt and Melly Ford Brown, a 2006 graduate of Camden Hills Regional High School, is a feisty fighter, determined to prove all of his doctors wrong. Already he has made incredible progress, thanks to special therapies including the Masgutova Neurosensorimotor Integration Method.
Sharing from the Heart aims to raise much-needed funds for Silas’ therapies, equipment, and medical bills, as well as provide the community a chance to gather in support of this resolute little boy. Come enjoy tea and treats, bid on unique items, and watch MNRI therapy in action. Auction items include themed baskets, jewelry, gift certificates for businesses (including Andrea’s Bridal of Portland,) original art, hand crafted items, gourmet food, restaurant certificates, and much more. Specially created Silas Saga Gear will also be available.
To make a donation or cannot attend, gifts may be made on Silas’ behalf to Annie’s Angel’s Memorial Fund, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. For more information on the event, donating, or Silas’ journey, visit silassaga.com or call Becky Ford at 542-0858.
