Art sold for fundraiser stolen from Hazlewood

At Hazlewood, two art pieces sold for a fundraiser to benefit a liver transplant were stolen, according to Dan'l Linehan, whose friend's father is the one undergoing the surgery.

Linehan is encouraging everyone to spread the word. He posted the story on Facebook this morning:

"Seattle - SHARE THIS! After an art auction was held to benefit a liver transplant for the father of my friend Katie Blackstock, these two SOLD pieces were stolen from Hazlewood in Ballard. These thieves didn't just steal from Katie and her dad, but they stole from our community, the bar, & the people that supported this cause with their time, hearts & hard earned money. Seattle is a small town, so spread this far and wide. Hopefully these thieves will see this and the art pieces will be returned to Hazlewood and delivered to those who bought them."

Correction: this story originally stated that the fundraiser was for a kidney transplant. It was, in fact, for a liver transplant. We apologize for the error.
