On December 14th, HEMINGWAY & PICKETT will host an auction to raise funds for Micheltorena with the help of local artists at it's first annual H&P Holiday Ornament Show. Local artists have created unique Christmas tree ornaments for sale. The Santa Talk books will be available. ALL PROCEEDS GO TO... You know what, I'll let this kid tell you--
