On Saturday, March 16, 2013, a benefit, dinner and raffle for Morgan Loken will take place at Links of Northfolk in Ramsey from 6 to10 p.m.
Morgan Loken of Otsego and her twin brother were born prematurely at 34 weeks in June 2012. Morgan was born with Down Syndrome. Since her birth, she has faced a series of illnesses and health issues. She has been admitted to Children’s Hospital for multiple day stays on a number of occasions.

Morgan may require additional surgeries in the future. Her parents, Doug and Meagan Loken, are on a constant vigil at her bedside monitoring her and loving her through all this.
