Bird In A Tree Boutique Gives In Honor of Gavin Lee

Join us (Bird In A Tree Boutique) this weekend to Shop for a Cause!

10% of all sales from this 2-day event will be donated to the Gavin Lee Memorial Fund.

 Gavin Lee would have turned 18 years old on Friday, September 22, 2017. He was a fun loving, goofy, caring young man that gave of himself to many. He loved sports, especially baseball, animals, video games and hanging out with his friends and family. Everyone who knew him knew his love for kids. He laughed a lot, hated doing yard work, was an avid reader, and quite the pool shark. Gavin passed away on July 7th, 2015 at the age of 15 from an unfortunate ATV accident. In honor of Gavin’s love for sports, funds are raised year round to support local youths at South Ripley and Batesville High School, where Gavin attended both. As the fund grows they will hopefully be adding Osgood, Milan, and Sunman Schools. Please join us in celebration of Gavin’s life and legacy as we support the local communities where Gavin called home.

 If you cannot make the event,or would just like to donate directly to the Fund, donations can be made at the Ripley County Community Foundation or Online @ 

 “Friends and Family are my Favorite Things in Life” ~ Gavin Lee
(You would find this quote many times on pictures of his friends and family on Facebook. And if you ever had a chance to meet him, you knew he meant it!)

 Hope to see you this weekend!
