Oklahoma author Jackson Compton reports that the recent benefit auction and raffle for local writer Belinda Dye Nichols raised more than $1400.

“I just want to say ‘thank you’ to everyone who donated items for the auction and raffle for Belinda‘s benefit, and another ‘thank you’ to those in attendance who purchased those items,” Compton wrote on Facebook.

Compton says more help is needed.  Here are more ways to help out:

Also, I (am) getting several messages from people who could not attend but still wanted to donate. You can do that by making a donation to Belinda’s PayPal account:

Nichols has been diagnosed with brain cancer; proceeds from the benefit went to her family to help with medical expenses and bills.
