The Stu Parnes Family Fundraiser in Memory of Quinn Parnes

The Stu Parnes Family Fundraiser in Memory of Quinn Parnes
I've known Stu as a well rounded Magic player for a few years. Every interaction with him has been positive. It was heartbreaking to hear about the recent loss of his wife Quinn. On top of the pain Stu and his stepson Indie are going through are tremendous medical bills.

Upon hearing about the family's loss, members of the Magic community immediately reached out to me offering their support in exchange for an organized event to aid the grieving family.

I've been working behind the scenes with several players and stores to put something together. I have vouched our Wednesday Night Modern on August 28th to raise funds for the Parnes family.

We will be collecting donations on behalf of the Parnes family leading up to the event. You do not have to be a Magic player to donate. If you cannot donate, instead please share this event and message. All aid is welcome and appreciated.

Thank you,
Judge Chris
