Rachael Short Fundraisers

donations and cards can be sent to PO Box 161, Big Sur, CA 93920.

As many of you may have heard, local photographer Rachael Short was critically injured in an automobile accident on Halloween night. She has undergone two surgeries at Stanford and will likely be hospitalized for many months to come. Rachael has lived and worked in Big Sur and Carmel all of her life. She is an extraordinary photographer and recently opened her own gallery in Carmel … EXPOSED.

On Sunday November 14th, Big Sur River Inn Manager, Selena Perez along with Big Sur River Inn Comptroller, Jennifer Guzowski, her husband, Captain Cooper School Teacher, Ted Guzowski, will be participating in the Big Sur Half Marathon. All three will be running in honor of Rachael and they are inviting others to honor and support Rachael by pledging a donation for each of the 13 miles that they will run that day. All donations will be used to assist Rachael with her mounting medical expenses.

In the spirit of the upcoming season of giving we would ask you to be thankful for all that you have and to help in any way that you can…no amount is too small.

Questions, additional information, donations and per-mile-pledges can be made by contacting Jennifer Guzowski at jennifer@bigsurriverinn.com or Janet Lesniak at janet@bigsurriverinn.com. You can also find the event “Running For Rachael” on Facebook. You will be contacted after the race so that we may collect your donations. Contributions may be made by cash, check or credit card.

Thank you for your support and participation in this pledge drive for Rachael!

Even though we live in Southern California we think of her often and can’t believe this happened. Our thoughts an prayers are with her and her family as she goes through recovery. We will let all of our family members about the fundraisers

Rachael took our wedding photos a few years ago, took newborn photos of our daughter this past December and then took more photos for my family this summer. She is amazingly talented and an absolute joy to be around. I will be passing this info on to my family- we all think highly of Rachael. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her.
