10-Minute Astrology Readings Fundraiser for Kelly Lee Phipps

At this month's meeting we will be hosting a special event where we will have 8 different astrologers and tarot readers giving 10-minute readings for $10 each, in order to raise money for one of our members who recently got sick.  

Fundraiser for Kelly Lee Phipps

In October, Boulder-based astrologer Kelly Lee Phipps learned that he had brain cancer, and after two months of trying to treat the issue with an operation and radiation/chemotherapy treatments, Kelly recently began hospice care.

Some of you may remember Kelly from a lecture he gave for our group on the Saturn-Jupiter cycle back in October of 2011. The purpose of this month's meeting is to raise some money for Kelly and his family in order to help cover some of the costs associated with his treatment. 

At the meeting we will have 6 astrologers and 2 tarot readers who have volunteered to give 10-minute readings for $10 each, and all money that is collected from the event will go directly to Kelly and his family.  

Social Gathering

This meeting will also be a social event, where people can meet and talk with other astrologers. So, even if you don't want to get your chart read, please join us in order to meet some people and have drinks and refreshments. 

About The People Doing Readings

We currently have 8 people who have volunteered to give astrology or tarot readings at the meeting:

• Chris Brennan

• Leisa Schaim

• Eujenia Renfroe

• Beverly Torkelson

• Adam Galblum

• Doug Fresh

• John Michael Allen 

• Nanette Furman

What You Need to Bring

If you would like to get your birth chart interpreted then you should try to bring a printed copy of your chart with you if you can. Some of our astrologers will have laptops so that they can cast your chart there, but some will not. 

Each reading will cost $10, and we will only be accepting cash, so you should bring enough money for however many readings you would like to get. There should be enough time during the two hour meeting to get readings from a few different people if you would like to.  

What We Need Help With

We will probably need some extra extension cords and power strips in order to plug in laptops for the different astrologers. If you happen to have an extra extension cord or power strip that you could bring in then please let us know.  

We could also use some help getting the word out about this meeting, so if you could share it with your friends or other people that might be interested in getting their chart read, we would really appreciate it.

    I was so happy to participate in this event; Thanks Chris & Leisa for all your work to put this together. Thinking about your early comments about astrologers not having the 'friend' support group found in other organizations... how do you feel about having a fund that is ongoing and we do one of these events each year without waiting for something tragic to happen?
    Side note to Sharon: I cannot decipher your email and have not been able to send you your chart. Please reply.

      I think that that would be a good idea. Apparently the NCGR already has a fund like this set up, and they sent some money to Kelly from that fund. Our group isn't incorporated yet, so we don't really have the ability to do anything like that, but maybe it is time that we incorporated so that we could.

    I would like to facilitate a small sale of astrological and tarot related goods to benefit Kelly. Bring extra cash to buy from a collection of a vintage and antique "things" collected over many years. All monies to be donated to Kelly and his needs.

      So, I'm still thinking about those cigarette cards...

    I don't use the word blessed very often, but that's how I felt. I loved my readings, my prizeS and everyone I came into contact with. Looking forward to reading Kelly's book and playing with my Doreen Virtue cards I purchased. XOXOXO!

    Leisa Schaim and I just finished counting up the money from the fundraiser today, and in the end we raised $1402 all together for Kelly and his family!

    $772 of that came from 9 people doing readings, $510 came from the raffle, and $120 came from group member Laura Cuplin who had a table where she sold some vintage astrology items and donated all the money.

    We will be driving up tomorrow morning to deliver the money in person to Kelly's family.

    The event was a huge success, and hopefully we will be able to give a full report on it soon. I think Tera Marie Major took some pictures, so we will share those soon as well.

    Thank you to everyone who volunteered to give readings, donated raffle prizes, or attended!

    We will also be doing a raffle during the meeting. A few astrologers have donated things like consultations, an astrological almanac for 2014, an online astrology class, and a few other things.

    December 12, 2013

    • Nanette F.

      Oh good idea. If it helps, I'd be happy to donate a full length reading-75.00, for the raffle.
