There will be a benefit in Neola, IA at St. Pat's Hall on February 13th. There will be a dinner and silent auction at 5PM, a live auction at 7PM and a dance following with live music by Chasing Daylight.
Anyone wishing to donate items for the auction should contact Heather Davis at 402-659-6848 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact Rob and Carol Leaders at 712-566-2045 to help with the fundraiser.
I know that many of you following this blog will not be able to attend the benefit in Neola on the 13th, but what you can do is make a donation to the Avery Christiansen Fund by going into any US Bank and asking to make a deposit into this account or sending a check to: US Bank, PO Box 100, Underwood, IA 51576. There will be a financial need over the course of Avery's treatment, so please donate what you are able to on a monthly basis. What seems like so little to us as individuals, will collectively have a big impact on reducing the stress level for Jeremy and Jenn.
Their trip to Memphis is going well. Avery is being a content passenger and they should arrive at St. Jude's around 2 and have their first meeting with the oncologist at 3.
