Why: The community is invited to attend a memorial event and fundraiser honoring the life of Summer Kolesar, an Asheville resident, wellness practitioner and mother of three who passed away this Tuesday morning after battling cancer. The fundraiser will include food provided by area eateries, entertainment by The River Guerguerian Project (world percussion), dancing by Katya Kudrova, Moonsilver Acrobalance and a live auction featuring work by local artists Jonas Gerard and Sabra (plus a vacation package to Costa Rica, gift baskets from area businesses, health services and much more).
All proceeds go to Kolesar’s family, to help relieve them of their “financial burdens during [this] time of mourning,” as stated in a press release. The public is welcome to come celebrate while honoring Kolesar’s life and legacy. Info: Sagesansone@hotmail.com or 545-9386.
