HOISINGTON — Opportunities to win prizes have been added to the agenda at the upcoming fundraiser for a Hoisington boy who is facing a life-threatening illness.
All proceeds will go directly to the Cameron Grubb Medical Fund to help with expenses related to the 6-year-old’s illness, said Coordinator Jettie Zoller.
Tickets for the raffle are one dollar each or six for $5. Prizes include $100 in cash; a $100 Town & Country Supermarket gift certificate; quilts; children’s bench; holiday decoration; wine rack; and many other items.
Drawings will be held at the Chris Cakes pancake-and-sausage dinner, which is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 6 at the Hoisington Activity Center. Ticket holders don’t have to be present to win.
Raffle tickets, as well as the $6 dinner tickets are available at the door, Town & Country Supermarket, and First Kansas Bank locations in Hoisington, Claflin and Great Bend.
Cameron Grubb, son of Mitch and Jackie Grubb, was diagnosed 18 months ago with Midaortic Syndrome (MAS) with renal artery stenosis.
The youngster must return to Boston Children’s Hospital soon for the first of two kidney auto-transplants. This surgery entails moving his organs into the lower abdomen.
“All of us on the coordinating committee encourage everyone to come out and support this deserving family,” Zoller said. “They are facing many difficulties, including the financial burdens that come with traveling for medical care.
“The family is extremely gratified by the support of their community,” Zoller added. “The Dec. 6 fundraiser will be another opportunity for all of us to show that we care and are willing to help.”
