Event Description

As many of you know, my step-dad is in need of a double lung transplant at Cleveland Clinic. He has suffered from asthma his entire life and was diagnosed with severe emphysema in 2009. We took a trip this past May to Cleveland where he went through two days of testing and was told by the doctors that he is most definitely in need of the transplant, and after more testing in Cleveland and Buffalo that he will be eligible for the transplant. As you can imagine, with the trips to Cleveland, medical expenses, and lodging expenses for this procedure, this is going to be quite expensive. We are holding this benefit in hopes to take some stress off of Fred so that he is able to concentrate on whats most important...him getting better. The benefit will be held at Three Over Restaurant, 4343 Porter Road, in Niagara Falls from 12-6 on Sunday, September 21st. There will be a basket auction and 50/50 drawing. Tickets are $20 each which includes food, one sheet of tickets for the baskets, and live entertainment coming from Fred VanDusen's favorite.... 90 WEST!! Please see me, Chelsea Ferloin, Nicole Knox, Mike No Go, Ian Long, Tina Newman Kozak, Elaine Newman Haeick, Amanda Newman, Jackie Mcgann-Swart, Amanda Webster for tickets. If you are unable to attend, we are also looking for donations of baskets, gift cards, etc....anything will help and we are more than happy to pick up! Please help us to help Fred get better!! Hope to see you all there :)
