We share in the sorrow at the passing of Fred Hodgson, board member and sales associate at Art Works Gallery in Grass Valley and a passionate supporter of HALO.

Fred and his spouse Brad Carter founded and hosted the annual Art for Life fundraiser and silent auction in their beautiful native-plant garden, raising thousands of dollars to help HALO serve local people and families living with HIV/AIDS. Before moving to Grass Valley, Fred served for 13 years as a board member of the AIDS Services Foundation in Orange County.

Memorial contributions may be made to HALO. Please make donations payable to “Unity in the Gold Country” and write “HALO – in memory of Fred Hodgson” on the memo line of the check. Donations may be mailed to Unity in the Gold Country Spiritual Center, 180 Cambridge, Grass Valley, CA 95945.
