Hope 4 Mike – Fundraiser

Fundraiser Auction for Mike Benedik

When Sherpas director Eric Crosland heard that long year friend of Sherpas Cinema and canadian action sports cinematographer Mike Bendedek was diagnosed with Cancer he immediately offered that the Sherpas will help out in any way they can.

Mike has a tumour in his sacrum which is rare, and it is uncertain at this time how it’s going to be managed. 

With help from our friends, athletes and partners we will raise money for Mike. Thank to JP Auclair, Chris Rubens and Salomon and Eric Hjorleifson and Arc’teryx.

The Sherpas will host a fundraiser premiere of Into The Mind and Stand the new film from b4apres Media on November 6th in Vernon, BC where we will present the cheque from this auction to Mike.
We will be showing two movies, with popcorn and snacks, and having a silent auction at the event, at the Vernon Rec Center from 6:30pm to 10:30pm, refreshments will be available and tickets are only $25!
