Regulars at the Red Eye Cafe (205 North Hamilton St., Saginaw) are accustomed to seeing the shop walls adorned with artwork by locals. This time, though, the proceeds from the sales are for a special purpose. The cafe is hosting a silent auction to benefit the Sean Stennett Memorial
Fund. Stennett died in a shooting incident in Saginaw last week.
According to event organizer Cassie Brenske, local artists have donated over 50 artworks, and 4 guitars number among
the items as well. All of these items will remain on display at the cafe until the bidding closes at 9pm on Saturday, Dec. 11.
Among others, contributors include Jason Graham, Scott Cramton, Peter Barry, Katie
Stanton, Paolo Pedini, Studio 23, Mari Perry, Jason Armstrong, Tom
Larson, Eric Schantz, JMX Photography, Marcia Henne, Matt Lewis, Jim
Perkins, James Mullineaux, Scott Edwards, Erin Case, Elisa Spyker,
Geoffrey Pelkey, Missy Alazaul, Erica Sage, Jen Habeger, Carol Hacket,
Jimmy Hughes, Amanda Derocher, Andrew Forrest Searl, Kellie Schneider,
A.J. Householder, Tisch Mikhail Lewis, Kevin Kucken, Jazz Kucken.
White's Bar is also collecting
contributions. Or you may send mail to Sean Stennett Memorial Fund, c/o
