Benefit planned for local cancer patient March 10

Proceeds to help Annie Cleveland with doctor bills

— The family of Johnsburg resident Annie Cleveland is organizing a fundraiser to help her pay costs of medical bills associated with battling cancer. She has no health insurance.

The event will be held from 1 to 11 p.m. Saturday, March 10 at J&J’s Foxx Lair Tavern on Route 8 in Bakers Mills.

“Please help out a local family,” said Annie’s daughter-in-law, Tara Cleveland.”It’s a small community, and we ask that people come out.”

The fundraiser will be filled with food and drink. J&J’s Foxx Lair Tavern will be donating the meat for the meals, and family and friends will donate the rest of the food.

People are asked to donate what they can at the door. In addition, there will be an auction of items, including a load of firewood, a picnic table, a hope chest, an entry door with installation, a Kindle Fire and a variety of gift certificates from local businesses. There will also be a 50/50 raffle, JELL-O shots and door prizes.

Local DJs Phil Downey and After FX will provide music all day for the event.

Free cab rides home will be provided to those in attendance.

For more information, call (518) 251-0133.
