She was our founding auctioneer and has continued the traditions for THIRTY years, and has helped Leather Pride Night raise many thousands of dollars for LGBT and AIDS related charities.
On June 6, 2014, a powerful storm system stalled over northern Maryland, dumping over 3.5 inches of rain in less than an hour. Overwhelming the storm drains, the water poured into Jo’s yard to a depth of four feet, sweeping away her fencing and flooding her basement. In addition to damage to the house itself, the water heater and furnace were swamped along with many precious personal and historical items. Extensive mold mitigation will be required. They had flood insurance but it did NOT cover this because it was “flowing water” not “standing water.”
Jo’s friend Susannah Ravenswing is coordinating a GoFundMe campaign for provide support for her. Please considering sharing and supporting Jo:
