With thanks to all the folks who helped bid up the art, with thanks to our winning bidder Wil Shipley, and with thanks to our matching donor Gary Tyrrell, we were able to raise $1,560 toward Parkinson's research. It's a very nice thing to do to honor Richard Thompson, and I thank you all: You guys are awesome.
And! If, like me, you are awed and humbled and very entertained by Richard's strip Cul de Sac, consider pledging a few bucks towards Parkinson's research as well. It's a good thing to do..in honor of a great cartoonist.
