From Ottawa, Canada about Sunday's Event:
pARTicipants included The Latest Artists, who installed video projections and a modular light sculpture, music by Travino, performers from the Ottawa bellydance and psytrance communities, Burners from Ottawa & Montreal, including one of the Montreal Regional Reps, and many friends of all those pARTicipating came out to enjoy the evening. We extend many thanks to all performers and those who came to support the event and our silent auction and most notably extend thanks and gratitude to The Mercury Lounge, whose generous donation of their venue made the event possible! With about 75 participants, we raised about $800 (CAD) and still some proceeds are rolling in from the Silent Auction, which included music, arts, and crafts created by local burners and dancers. Given that many of those pARTicipating had never met Hollis, nor even thought of attending Burning Man, it speaks to the unity of the artistic community during times of crises, and the generosity of the many souls touched by Hollis and her family. On behalf of our community I'd like to extend prayers for good health and well being for Hollis, Harrison, Diane, and her family.
