Caring community members came out in droves to the Loving Lizzie benefit held August 4 at Creative Technologies Academy. “There were almost 1,000 people that attended the benefit, raising over $13,000,” said Steve Mogdis. For those who attended and planned the benefit, it was unreal how the community came out and embraced the August Family, lifting them up with their support.
The August Family was able to attend the benefit for a short time, but Lizzie had to wear a mask for protection. When they pulled into the parking lot they were overcome with emotion, upon seeing the people who came together that evening for them.
Lizzie made it through her first round of chemo and is doing great. She has started on the second one, which should be complete by the end of this week. Please continue to keep her in your prayers.
None of this would have been possible without the support of local residents, businesses, and the media. It was a heartwarming event that brought this close-knit community even closer together.
