Auction 15 – In March 2009, comedian –Brent Butt from Corner Gas came to town and on a whim I contacted his manager and asked about doing a Comfort Doll photo with him.. within a few short hours I had an answer back: Brent would be delighted to do a photo for our project when he came to town. I was able to take a friend with me to do the photo and it was pretty cool to meet the mastermind and comic genius behind Corner Gas
We auctioned off Brent’s photo and brought in $40 dollars – keeping with Brent’s sense of adventure and humor, we chose to purchase a Piglet! A piglet can plumb up to 90 pounds in only 3 months, is a great source of fertilizer and protein. A female pig can produce a litter every year to sell at market – it seemed the perfect fun gift.
