WHEN: Saturday, April 11th from noon to 5PM
WHERE: The Rusty Bucket and Venro, 934 Main St, Charlestown, IN 47111

This is a family friendly event so please bring the entire family! There will be several local musicians playing as well as a basket auction, silent dessert auction, food, activities for the kids, and possible pool and corn hole tournaments!

If anyone would like to help out please either contact Joe Stamper, or mention something on the event wall on Facebook under Benefit for Brody Curtis. You can also contact Robin Cross if you would like to donate items for the auctions.

Brody is the son of Charlestown High School math teacher Heather Curtis (Hogg) (lifelong resident of Charlestown), and her husband Chuck, and he attends preschool at New Washington Elemtary. Brody was born on May 24, 2011 with a very rare, serious, and life threatening skin condition called Recessive Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa, or just EB for short. Brody is missing the protein in his skin that holds it together. When he was born, Brody was missing skin on his arms, hands, legs, and feet. The slightest amount of friction against his skin causes it to either form painful blisters or come off altogether. Children born with EB are called “Butterfly Children” because their skin is as fragile as butterfly wings. Because of this, Brody must be wrapped from the neck down in bandages to help protect his skin from wounds and infections. Many doctor’s appointments are required for Brody at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. Brody must also take many medications. These things along with the bandage materials he needs are all very expensive. At this time, there is no cure for EB. You can also make donations to any New Washington State Bank to The Brody Curtis Custodianship.
