Former KISW/Seattle's Cathy Faulkner Hosts Auction For Husband
February 29, 2016 at 1:10 PM (PT)
During her 20 year tenure (1980-2000) at ENTERCOM Active Rock KISW/SEATTLE, former Air Talent/MD CATHY FAULKNER helped break the careers of some of the biggest names in Rock from PEARL JAM, ALICE IN CHAINS and SOUNDGARDEN to TOOL and CANDLEBOX. Now the music community has rallied its circle of support to raise funds for FAULKNER, whose family is facing a major, life-altering crisis.
After suffering a brain injury, CATHY’s husband NELS MOULTON was diagnosed with stage 4 Melanoma. This discovery has been met with staggering medical expenses combined with a loss of income for the family of three, including 11 year old son, TREVOR.
Through a partnership with the LIVE SUNSMART FOUNDATION, "Team NELS" (the community of supporters who have rallied to assist the FAULKNER/MOULTON family) is hosting an online auction to raise awareness about the effects of skin cancer and to also help raise much needed funds to support the family during their journey to healing.
"Even with insurance, we are still dealing with a massive amount of medical bills that will continue for the foreseeable future," said FAULKNER. "We are beyond grateful for the outpouring of support from our friends, family and the music community at large. We believe music fans will be excited about the unique items and experiences that will be available for bid."
Unique items and fan experiences will be auctioned online now through MARCH 9th. Among the unique and one-of-a-kind items available through the Team NELS/Live SunSmart auction are a G&L Tribute Series Superhawk guitar signed by JERRY CANTRELL of ALICE IN CHAINS, an autographed red Fender guitar signed by TOM PETTY, an autographed AC/DC poster, a 1903 copy of VITALOGY health encyclopedia signed by the four founding members of PEARL JAM and more.
