(December 27, 2016) – On Sunday, January 15 a very special fundraiser will take place at Daddy O’s in Hopewell Junction. Emma Levine, age 11 was recently diagnosed, and is now being treated for Soft Tissue Renal Sarcoma, an extremely rare type of pediatric kidney cancer. Emma has had a tumor and one kidney removed and is now going through chemotherapy and radiation. It’s been a long road for Emma and her family, but it’s not done yet. She still has a way to go, and she and her family could use the community’s help.
On Sunday, January 15 from 12-4 at Daddy O’s in Hopewell, friends of Emma’s family will be hosting a fundraiser to raise money for the family’s expenses and medical costs. The event will provide live music performed by Ginger Jungle and The Thrown Together Band. Both groups have donated their time to perform. The event will also consist of raffles with prize basket giveaways, a 50/50, T-shirts for sale and a raffle with a chance to win $5,000.
300 raffle tickets will be sold at $50 per ticket. If all 300 are sold, a 1st ($5,000), 2nd ($500) and 3rd ($150 gift card to a local business to be announced) prize will be awarded. In the event that all 300 tickets are not sold, the top prize will not be drawn. Only the second and third prize amounts will be drawn. The more tickets you buy, the higher your chance of winning and the more likely you are to win a prize.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE PRESENT AT THE EVENT TO WIN ANY PRIZE IN THIS RAFFLE. *** no ticket number requests allowed.
