Scottish stained glass collection to be auctioned for children’s clinic
CENTENNIAL, Colo. – The prized personal collection of antique stained glass windows owned by Scottish Stained Glass president Martin Faith, will be auctioned Thursday, June 21 as a fundraising effort for Project C.U.R.E.
The “Buy a Window, Save a Life” cocktail event will take place on the evening of the Summer Solstice at the Scottish Stained Glass showroom in Centennial, Colorado. From 5:30 pm to sunset, these one of a kind, masterpiece windows will be on display with experts explaining their design and construction. Sparkling in the sun of the longest day of the year, the windows will be sold, with a select grouping available via a live silent auction, to raise the funds needed to help Project C.U.R.E. ship containers holding approximately $1,000,000 of medical supplies to the new pediatric intensive care unit of the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital in Belize City.
“I had the privilege of meeting Project C.U.R.E.’s president, Dr. Doug Jackson, several years ago and have wondered repeatedly ever since what we could do to become a part of the mission of this highly respected organization,” said Martin Faith, founder of Scottish Stained Glass and Scottish Home Improvements. “Despite their tremendous personal value to our family, we realize that selling and auctioning the collection of antique stained glass we brought with us from Scotland over 20 years ago could potentially save hundreds, if not thousands of lives, and we are honored to make them available for the public to see and buy to help this incredible cause.”
Each of the 150 leaded glass windows that will be available at the event were hand made between 1870 and 1914. Every window is in exceptional condition and requested donation prices begin at $400 and range up to $20,000.
Organizers invite one and all to party like a Scotsman at the festive June 21 event, which will feature a Scottish band, bagpipes, excellent food and wine. Kilts are encouraged.
The address is 14250 E. Easter Place, Centennial, CO 80112.
