As most of you know, we are a Baltimore based company and we LOVE our city. A few weeks ago, peaceful protests in our city were interrupted by a small number of rioters who turned violent. Although the rioters were small in number the damage caused to local homes, cars, and businesses was severe. One such family, the Lawson family, was a victim of this violence. On April 28th, 2015 rioters set the building adjacent to the Lawson residence on fire which subsequently caught their home on fire. Neighbors were able to get Ms. Lawson and her son out of the home safely but with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Ms. Lawson's son has special needs and his wheelchair was also lost in the fire.
The riots are over, the protests are dwindling, and most of the residents of our city have resumed their normal everyday life. However, many residents, like the Lawson's , have not been afforded that luxury. This auction is to raise money to help the Lawson family rebuild. All proceeds will be donated to the family via the Bea Gaddy Foundation.
