Signed Robin Williams ‘Good Morning Vietnam’ Photo to Be Auctioned Off For a Good Cause in Blue Lake on Thursday

For years, the North Coast Stand Down events have reached out to Humboldt’s veterans in an attempt to provide them with needed services and rehabilitation opportunities. Last October’s three day event boasted a volunteer staff of over a hundred people, four dentists and veterinary services to work with service animals. This year’s Stand Down takes place at the Humboldt County Fairgrounds October 3 through 5. 

But of course these events don’t just happen without community support. As such, Stand Down organizers will hold their annual Fundraising Dinner and Auction this Thursday in Blue Lake Casino’s Sapphire Palace. Several big ticket items will be available for bid, raffle and door prizing — kayak, gas grill, to name a couple. 

One item that stands out a bit more due to recent events is a photo of Robin Williams dressed for his role as Adrian Cronauer in Good Morning, Vietnam. Last week, before yesterday’s tragic news broke, organizer Mona Daily spoke with KHUM’s Cliff Berkowitz about the significance of the item, as well as the details of this year’s event.
