Birmingham, AL –Thursday, February 6, from 5:30pm to 8:00pm Seibels of Homewood, in partnership with Paige Patterson of Lake Homes Realty and Erle Morring of Realty South, will host the ‘Dock & Donate’ Benefit & Silent Auction -- a fundraiser and mixer with all proceeds benefiting local nonprofit Children’s Harbor.
Among the items up for auction are: a swinging bed from Seibels, a Lake Martin getaway weekend including a one-bedroom Villa at The Village and a “Different Perspective” date package including a skyline helicopter tour of Birmingham from Express Helicopter.
Each year hundreds of seriously ill children and their families come to Birmingham, AL to take advantage of the world-renowned Benjamin Russell Hospital for Children. Their stays are long and their needs extend beyond just medical care. Children’s Harbor seeks to address some of those other needs.
Children’s Harbor is a nonprofit organization that provides assistance and counseling to children with serious illnesses and their families. In partnership with the Benjamin Russell Hospital for Children in Birmingham, Alabama, Children’s Harbor created The Children’s Harbor Family Center within the hospital and provides camping and adventure excursions to nearby Lake Martin for seriously-ill children and their families, providing a welcome break from the day-to-day trials of living with serious illness.
This dedication to those in need inspired local Realtors Paige Patterson and Erle Morring to do what they can to help Children’s Harbor continue their mission.
“Children's Harbor speaks to the 'thin veil between healthy children and ill children.' … I appreciate Children's Harbor miracle-making services. My family and business wants to support them any way we can,” Patterson said when asked about Children’s Harbor.
When asked what her goals were for the ‘Dock & Donate Benefit’, Patterson emphasized the need for resources and exposure.
“I want people in and around Birmingham and Lake Martin to understand what a great organization this is and how they are helping people in need. This event is about more than donations. It’s about raising awareness and connecting people or corporations looking for a way to make a difference with Children’s Harbor.”
