On September 22 the San Diego Brain Injury Foundation (SDBIF) sponsored a “Friendraiser” at the Mission Trails Visitor Denter. Over 200 guests attended the event to raise funds for the foundation.
A member of the San Diego Native American Flute Circle (see them play), was on hand to play a variety of traditional Native American flutes and silent auction items including artwork by brain injury survivors.
As the night sky appeared, Larry Marshall, a member of the San Diego Astronomy Association, set up a wonderful telescope attached to a video screen. This allowed everyone to see the moon in spectacular fashion.
One gentleman, confined to a wheelchair, was very appreciative and said that “without the video screen I would never have been able to see the moon in such detail.”
Santee resident Donna Lewis is a board member of the SDBIF and she also has a son who is a brain injury survivor. His artwork was part of the silent auction.
Proceeds from the event provide services and support for brain injury survivors.
