Hello everyone. I have been a friend of Bills for quite some time he has been one of the guys who has spent allot of hours mentoring me in my knifemaking endeavors.
Bill and his wife Patty have recently been hit with some serious and unexpected medical expenses. Patty recently had to undergo surgery in Salt Lake City to have a tumor removed from her head. Bill being the Pridefull and honarable person that he is would probably never let this be known to anyone but a few of his closest friends. I am looking at doing something here to try to raise some money to help them out. I am looking for ideas if anyone has any.
I am doing this at the risk of offending Bill but we all know how independently wealthy knifemakers are and i think it would be a good thing to help a brother out when it is needed.
I am thinking a auction of some type if this would be okay with Traci.

You can do it in this forum and post a few "heads up" notices in more high traffic areas if you'd like.

Our first worthy KD Charity donation.

KnifeDogs.com Build off Charity drive will donate $400 to the Bill Burke family.

I will contact Bill and set up a funds transfer from our GunPal account.
