Benefit planned for Miguel Duran & Family on Feb. 15
On Saturday, Feb. 15 at the Redgranite Lions Club there will be a benefit for Miguel Duran and His Family. Miguel has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer resistant to treatment, therefore it is terminal. In December his family received the devastating news that he had only a few months to live.
He is a nine-year-old boy, a student at Clay Lamberton, Berlin, and was a previous student at Riverview Elementary, Wautoma. He has the sweetest disposition and the brightest smile. He is a member of the Wautoma Super Stinger wrestlers and being a wrestler is by far his favorite sport. He wrestled this last Saturday and won first place and received a belt, which was one of his goals. With his diminishing strength this was probably his last wrestling match.
I am asking as a friend, as a Mom, as a Grandmother, to please help with the fundraiser. Miguel is a remarkable young boy and he needs our help. The benefit will only be as successful as the people that participate and donate. If you have a craft or work for a company where you can donate to the silent auction, make a basket for the raffle, or bake something for the bake sale, we so appreciate it. Also if you can donate time to work at the benefit – whether it is an hour or two or whatever time you can spare – the committee is grateful.
We live here and we help one another when there is a need – one of the many reasons I love living and working in Waushara County. I can tell you there is a need and I know this county will come through to help with the Benefit which is described to Miguel as a giant party for him.
The chairman of the entire event is Donna Weiss, her phone number is 920-765-1110 and her email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am chairing the Raffle Baskets, and co-chairing the Silent Auction with Ann Eckert and the Bake Sale with Char Stratton. Please call me at the Waushara Argus 920-787-3334 or email email@example.com with your donations or assistance the day of the benefit. Donations can be dropped off at the Waushara Argus office at W7781 State Rd. 21 & 73, Wautoma.
With your help this will be the best possible fundraiser/party for Miguel on Feb. 15 at the Redgranite Lions Club.
