Area artists are banding together Thursday, Nov. 3, to benefit Mary Anne Maier.

A long-time Boone resident, Maier was seriously injured in a car accident in July, leaving her with severe injuries that required 14 surgeries and a lengthy stay at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.

With a long road to recovery ahead, including extensive rehabilitation and additional surgeries, Maier is uncertain when she’ll return to work. To offset her medical costs, a few of her friends are doing what they do best: Perform.

The Nov. 3 fundraiser will include performances from Melissa Reaves, Lisa Baldwin & Dave Haney, Klee Liles, The Lost Faculties, Black Sheep Theatre and more, as well as food and drink, a silent auction and door prizes.

Auction donations include a seven-night stay in Taxco, Mexico, autographed books, Carolina Panthers tickets, gift certificates for massage, facials, restaurants, handmade items from Hands Gallery, mosaics, jewelry, pottery, woven clothing, wood carvings, framed prints and more.

The fundraiser takes place at 130 N. Depot St. in downtown Boone. Admission is a suggested $10 donation. For more information, contact Kirsten Tiedemann at ( or Elizabeth West at ( For more information, visit!/event.php?eid=263804143663587.
