JIM GINGERICH'S HORSE RIDING ACCIDENT MEDICAL SUPPORT
Organized by: Tito Saubidet
"Out West - New Work" Gallery Opening
September 09, 2016
As many of you may know, our dear friend and passionate artist JIM GINGERICH has been making remarkable paintings and drawings and happily riding his horse, Lucy, in Utah for the past several months. He has created an incredible body of work, and was just about to return to the Hamptons when he had a serious horse riding accident last Friday, shattering his pelvis in three areas. His beloved horse Lucy is fine. Jim’s surgery was long and complicated but went well. We are all hoping for a full recovery, which could take six months to a year. In the next few weeks, Jim will need extensive rehab and lots of support. He is staying positive, and the doctors say that he is fortunate to be in such great shape due to his love of yoga, swimming, tennis, going to the gym, and, of course, his daughter, Danielle, who is his biggest inspiration. As a very active person who is most alive when he is outdoors, he faces a challenging road ahead. We want to bring him home as soon as he is able to travel so he will be near family and his many friends. Jim would never ask, but he is going to need financial help and we are asking all of you who know and care about him to give whatever you can at this very challenging time.
All proceeds will go directly to help cover his extensive medical expenses. Donations of $1,500 and above can be rewarded with a pastel drawing, and gifts at higher levels will be rewarded with a painting. Your support is greatly appreciated.
