Ernest Lee, The Chicken Man fund

$7,510 of $9,000 goal

Raised by 239 people in 14 months
The funds will benefit local columbia artists Ernest Lee, know to many as "The Chicken Man" and his son Scottie Lee. His trailor and all art inside were stolen. The funds will be to replace his trailor. There is no way to replace all of the labor and material from his stolen artwork but please consider helping. I would like to increase our goal to $6000 and hopefully we can meet or exceed it by Christmas in ten days.

I am a friend of Ernest's and have four originals. My purpose in life is to have a living museum of local artists and always support them in any way possible. Ernest has not only given and brought joy to Columbia, but also the state of South Carolina.

Thank you for any amount you can donate.

Merry Christmas south Carolina from Ernest and Scottie Lee and Myself. I am Leslie Hanna Harper originally from Estill, SC but reside in Columbia now. I am a local art collector and became friends with Ernest through our love of art. I promised to help him in any way the First Friday in December 2017, when I purchased four originals from him. We have closed the gofundme since we have enough to buy a trailer and help build shelves to have a portable trailer museum to attach to his truck. CPD and Richland County are both working on the case but no leads in over three months.When the amount raised arrives on December 30, 2017, we will transfer from my account to Ernest's and head to buy a trailer he has found in Aiken. He would love other bids if someone wants to post your information here. Ernest's wanted to send an individual card to each of you. I explained we have no addresses and I would send hid thanks since he and his son are NOT on Facebook, but others are running accounts with his name. Please continue supporting them. They work daily on the corner of Oak and Gervais. Wishing everyone a Happy New Year. Les
