For the Locals: Jason Wolfkiel Benefit August 21st

How does this sound:

A fun evening with the fam on Friday, August 21st
Helping a family who desperately needs your help!

Sounds FABULOUS to me!!

If you recall, when we had our Pay it Forward Yard Sale, one of those who benefited from all the earnings was a local Kuna man, Jason Wolfkiel. But our little donation was just a drop in the bucket.

Jason is a 31 year old Kuna native who has been battling Familial Melanoma for 4 years. Sadly, all of the treatments thus far have yielded little results, and the cancer is back with a vengeance. His only option at this point is a treatment made available in Pennsylvania. It is an Immune System Therapy called Anti-CTLA. It requires a payment of $45,000 up front. Because of Jason's condition and subsequent treatments, he has been unable to work. His wife has gone back to work to support their 3 young children, but makes nowhere near enough to cover the cost.

So head over to Kuna High School THIS Friday night... eat some FAB FOOD (starting at 5:30), enjoy some rockin Bluegrass, bid on auction items and let your kids have fun at the carnival (starting at 7:00).

You'll have a LOT of fun, and help Jason get one step closer to the treatment he needs!!

I'm so happy you posted this. I have been ridiculously sick this last week, but I meant to email and ask you to do this post. Yeah for doing it in spite of my forgetfulness!

Amber- Sorry you are sick! :( Do you want me to bring you anything?

Some homemade chicken noodle soup? :) Really though, my throat is so sore I wouldn't want to swallow it. So thoughtful of you to ask!
