A live and silent auction of photography, art and sports memorabilia was held from 2 to 6 p.m., Sunday, April 7, 2013 at Lelli’s in Auburn Hills. Admission to the event was $10 with live and silent auctions, with items ranging from art and photographs from local Michigan artists to a Detroit Tigers jersey signed by Miguel Cabrera. All proceeds were donated to the Lewy Body Dementia Association.
Robert organized this fundraiser in honor of his mother Patricia, who was diagnosed with Lewy body dementia two years ago. “Although there’s nothing we can do to stop this disease, I can do something to build awareness of it. That’s why I’m putting on this fundraiser,” Robert said.
