MEDIA COVERAGE ON "MIGHTY MAXWELL" BENEFIT

THE BELLINGHAM HERALD

Store to host 'Mighty Maxwell' benefit

Treasury of Memories, a Bellingham scrapbooking store, will hold a "20 Hour Benefit Crop" for The Mighty Maxwell Guild.

The guild was created to provide funds for Children's Hospital and Regional Medical Center in Seattle. The goal is to raise $10,000 to kick off the guild's fundraising.

Elizabeth Boyle, owner of Treasury of Memories, is the aunt of Maxwell McKinley, for whom the guild is named. The Bellingham boy was born prematurely and with a rare genetic disorder called CHARGE Syndrome.

He spent the first six months in the hospital and underwent four surgeries, including open-heart surgery.

Proceeds from the event will go to the hospital. The event will run from 6 p.m. March 31 to 2 p.m. April 1 at Christ the King Community Church in Bellingham, 4173 Meridian St. Attendees are asked to raise $100 or donate $100. Classes, door prizes and food will be offered.
Children's Hospital and Regional Medical Center gives care regardless of a family's financial situation. Last year, they gave $35 million of uncompensated care.

For more information on the "20 hour Benefit Crop," contact Treasury of Memories at 715-3125, or e-mail elizabeth@treasuryofmemories.com.
