SBC to host Silent Auction for Julia

Julia Boss has been working with the mentally ill at Munson’s Mental Health Unit.   And, she has spent the last 15 years taking care of her mother, local artist Debra Sanborn, as she slowly died from cancer.  A week after the death of her mother in January, Julia was diagnosed with advanced stage breast cancer.  At 25 years old, Julia has yet to begin her life and is now saddled with the financial and emotional burdens of cancer.  Her coworkers and friends are actively working to raise money for Julia.  A bake sale at Munson recently raised over $3000.  But, we have a long way to go. 

Please join us for a fun filled evening of cider, live music, and a silent auction.   Suttons Bay Ciders will host a fund raising party for Julia on May 11, 2018 from 6 PM to 9 PM.  With a suggested entry donation of $25, you can try a tasting flight of ciders, imbibe a discounted pint, and enjoy the amazing panoramic views of the entire West Bay.  Proceeds and tips will go to Julia. 

Our local community has generously provided intriguing items for the silent auction including designer jewelry, a rare framed photo of David Bowie, gift baskets and gift certificates from Steder’s Family Tavern, Bulldog’s Barbershop, The Little Fleet, Georgina’s, Mackinaw Brewing, and Blossom Shop, and more.

All donations for Julia can be made at
