On Saturday, April 25, 2015, there will be a benefit for Signalman Mike McCune at the Abingdon American Legion from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. For those of you unaware, Mike has been diagnosed with a rare form of T-Cell Lymphoma. He is currently undergoing treatment of chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. Proceeds from the benefit will help defray medical costs and travel expenses for this extensive treatment.
Tomas Diaz & Company will be playing at the event and there will be a delicious pulled pork dinner, along with a 50/50 drawing, bake sale, and a silent auction - with items including an autographed Anthony Rizzo baseball, St. Louis Cardinals tickets, Chicago Bears tickets, a Chicago Blackhawks bag board game, certificates for seed corn, four 18-hole golf certificates, Nativity scene, Scentsy gift basket, and much more!
Anyone who's worked with Mike can attest to what a great guy he is and any support you can give him and his family will be much appreciated. If you can't attend the benefit, donations may be made directly to F&M Bank care of the "Benefit Account for Michael McCune."
For questions or to donate to the silent auction or bake sale, please contact:
Abingdon Area: Rick 224-2560 Alpha/Woodhull: Dee Dee 335-7507 Galesburg Area: Patsy 371-6600 Oneida Area: Dustin 337-3529
Thank you and please keep Mike and his family in your thoughts and prayers!
