My name is Tifanie Vogt and I am on the committee hosting a benefit spaghetti dinner/fundraiser for Lori Ward on December 4, 2010 in Murdock, Nebraska. Lori is a local woman who was recently diagnosed with cancer for the 4th time in ten years. She has battled her way through breast cancer twice in 2000 and 2004, lung cancer in 2009 and now bone cancer. We are raising funds to help out with Lori’s medical bills as well as the living expenses of Lori and her family.
We are looking to local retailers to help with the benefit. We are looking for items to be donated for the silent auction and raffle we will be having for Lori during the evening. Monetary donations will also be accepted to purchase auction items or to go directly to the family. All proceeds from the benefit dinner will go directly to Lori Ward and her family to help with their expenses. Lori and her husband Tom have lived in the Elmwood-Murdock area much of their married life and their daughter Kristy (Burrows) currently lives in Louisville with her husband BJ. They are a local family who needs support.
Thank you for your time.
