Donate4Marilyn benefit a success

Dear Editor:

The benefit we held on March 26 was a huge success. We were able to raise enough to help Paul and Marilynn with their bills so they can focus on her treatment and getting better.

A huge thanks goes out to all of the individuals and businesses who donated items to the silent auction and helped cover the cost of food, to K & R Custom Meats for the discount on the delicious pulled pork, to Jan and Randy Sward for donating their time to help prepare food, and to many others who supported the benefit by buying raffle tickets, bidding on auction items and just being there.

We also want to thank all of the wonderful people who volunteered their time to help set up, cook, serve food, clean up, and so much more. Thanks to the Braham Moose Lodge for the use of the space. There were so many wonderful people who helped out and we can’t thank you all enough. If you couldn’t make it to the benefit and would like to donate you can still donate at the Rural American Bank in Braham or through Paypal: [email protected]
