St. Andrew Lutheran Church, Rockton, will sponsor a spaghetti dinner and basket raffle Saturday, March 3, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. to benefit Jhon Ramirez, a student at Rockton Hononegah High School. Jhon suffers from muscular dystrophy, and the purpose of the event is to help offset expenses from a recent hospitalization and the rental cost of a breathing machine.
A $5 donation per person is encouraged, and children under 5 are free. Many community and regional merchants, as well as individual volunteers, have donated items for themed gift baskets, which are valued between $50 and $100 each. Basket raffle tickets are $1 per ticket or six for five dollars. An AKC registered bichon frise will also be offered as part of the fund-raiser.
St. Andrew Lutheran Church is at 511 W. Rockton Rd. For more information, contact Sue Rockman at (815) 623-6943.
