A benefit for Brian Quigley will be held Thursday, Aug. 23, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Rockwoods Banquet and Conference Center in Otsego.
In June, Brian was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma and is undergoing a very aggressive chemotherapy which will last six months, with a required hospital stay, of three or more days for each of eight separate sessions. Brian is unable to work through his treatment.
Brian is a driver for Morrell Oversize Inc., located in Elk River. He graduated from Anoka High School in 1984, and has lived in the Elk River area with his wife and two boys for 22 years.
This benefit is hosted by family and friends and all proceeds go to Brian and his family to offset medical bills and household bills during this difficult time.
A silent auction from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. is open to the community. Suggested donation is $10 per person at the door.
Raffle tickets will be sold for $2 each or six for $10. You do not need to be present to win. First prize is a 40-inch flat screen TV. A handmade quilt is the second prize.
Donations can be mailed to the address below or deposited at any TCF Bank location: Brian Quigley Benefit Fund c/o TCF Bank, 19216 Freeport Ave., Elk River, Minn. 55330.
