Brittany & Lee Support
We don't have the exact total yet as some monies are still coming in but to date we have collected $9,975 from the silent auction. I expect the final amount to be around $10,500. Amazing! Thank you again to everyone for all your support.
It's not too late to keep spreading the word in case there are people out there who would still like to donate. We have raised a lot (and even met the goal of $25,000!) but we know Brit and Lee will need all the help we can give them as the non-covered medical bills start coming in. And if by chance we do raise more than they need, Brit plans to donate the balance to a cause related to her injury.
So please like/share/email this post to keep spreading the word.
Thank you everyone! The "gofundme" gang.
I received this amazing email last night from Peter Bakken, the Managing Partner of Hearthstone restaurant here in Breck:
"This is to let you know that we deposited $5,843.00 into the account for Brittany at US Bank today. This was raised from all Britt's friends and co-workers at the Hearthstone and MiCasa, with a matching donation from our restaurant company, Storm Restaurants."
Thank you to everyone who donated and to the owners who matched those donations. What a GREAT community we live in. :)
Brit is at home in Breck, making surprise appearances as she can and getting better.
As I always say, please like/share/email these posts so we can keep spreading the word and keep the donations coming!

Thank you to everyone who donated items, everyone who came, everyone who helped and to Breckenridge Brewery for hosting the event. A special thanks to Jan and Jen for taking care of donations at the door. Everyone was amazingly generous with cash donations, buying raffle tickets and bids on the items. We had close to 150 items and not one went without a bid. I have no idea how many people attended but the Brewery was packed for hours. We don't have a total yet but it was far beyond our expectations. A surprise visit by Brit was the highlight of the night! She looked awesome!
Hey everyone. Just a reminder that the silent auction for Brit is tomorrow at the Breckenridge Brewery on Main St. in Breckenridge. 100% of the proceeds go to benefit Brit. There will be beer, light apps, and donations from many Breckenridge and other area shops, restaurants, and much more including items from Breckenridge Brewery, Fatty's, Relish, Ember, Big City Blues, Olive Fusion, Christy Sports, Vintage Sweet and Chic, Sun Logic, Modis, Mountain Vibe, Motherloaded, Stella and Dot, Quandary Grille, Taddeo's and much more!
Here's the link to a great Summit Daily article about the silent auction:
...and a link to the event on Facebook
Talked to Brit yesterday and she seems fantastic and in great spirits (of course) even after the pain of having the staples removed. She's anxious to get home and we're anxious to have her back home!
As always, please like/share/email this post to everyone so we can pack the Brewery tomorrow night and to keep this site in everyone's mind so we can keep the donations coming.
Thanks. The "gofundme" gang.
Thanks so much for organizing this effort, Matt. Please let me know how else I can be of help. I'm trying to circulate information about Britt's accident and recovery to all who grew to love her during her time in Cleveland. Don't hesitate to get in touch if I can do more.
