Update on kidney for Grace fundraisers.
Grace flies in this 4th of July weekend. Beginning Monday July 6th she can be seen around town. Her Doctor has her on a 1 month long visit only and she will be required to be on a strict diet and exercise program where she can be seen daily doing 2 hour workouts at the Newport Rec Center.
Her 1st fundraiser is the Newport Cafe 24 hour dine in on Tuesday July 14th. She will be there around noon with dad and her other 4 sisters and her Grandma to meet and greet and hopefully eat if there is room.
The Newport American Legion Spaghetti feed and auction is Saturday July 25th from 12 noon to 5pm. We still need auction items to be donated from local businesses. We have a few but need more. Grace will be there to meet and greet the whole time as well as myself and her other 4 sisters. We need a few volunteer servers to show up around 11:30am for the spaghetti feed.
Last but not least is the Waldport Moose Lodge Dinner, cakewalk and Karaoke on Friday July 31st from 5-10pm. The public is invited. Kids can come too. Staffing is provided but a few volunteers would be nice and we need as many people as possible to bring a store bought cake to the event for the cakewalk. Again Grace myself and her sisters will be there. Grace is very kind and friendly and will be meeting and greeting whoever would like to talk to her at each event and learn more about her situation. You can also donate by going to her gofundme account at http://de.gofund.me/kidneyforgrace or visiting a change jar at Newport Shell Gas, Oscars Mexican food in Newport and Lincoln City, Figaros Pizza Newport or American Legion Newport.
Grace’s family has set up a Go Fund Me account. To contribute whatever you can, just click here.
