As many of you know, Renata and Ray Guzman are from Hoboken, NJ. They won numerous awards when they were focused on the sign business. They broke away to focus more on design work a few years back (but are back doing some again due to the cause of this fundraiser) and when 9/11 hit the NYC area, many design firms were decimated. They limped throught - but in November of last year, Renata was diagnosed with breast cancer.
To help them through the rough period they are now facing, their friends have banded together to provide a little 'cushion'. Go here and take a look at what's up for bid:
