Fundraiser, rally for Bigelsens on Sunday

Submitted to The Union

Harvey and Judy Bigelsen will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary Sunday, from 3-7 p.m. at Summer Thymes, 231 Colfax Ave., Grass Valley. It is a multipurpose event that includes a silent auction, rally and fundraiser to celebrate and support the Bigelsen family.

The Bigelsen clinic was raided last March without notice or warning. Currently, Harvey Bigelsen is facing nine misdemeanor counts for distributing homeopathic remedies and other related offenses, including practicing medicine without a license, even though Bigelsen says he does not practice medicine. The community is rallying this Sunday to support and inform the public about the risks to alternative medicine.

The Bigelsens have been devastated by the raid, the closure of their business, subsequent foreclosure of their Nevada City home and now state and county prosecution. This grassroots fundraiser is to defray legal costs and living expenses while the Bigelsen's clinic is closed.

Hors d'oeuvres, live music, a silent auction and a host of information on your health freedoms will be available. A minimum of $10 is a suggested donation.
