•A benefit for Lisa Sorri will be held from 1-6 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 2, at the Grand Island Knights of Columbus Mary Star of the Sea Council No. 4752, 1841 Whitehaven Road.
The event includes food, beverages, live music, 50/50 and basket raffles. One person will win an iPad door prize. Tickets are $20 per person.
Lisa is a longtime Grand Island resident who still works in the community. She was born with a chronic illness, but never let it stop her from living her life or raising her children. Recently, however, the condition began to worsen, which required Lisa to undergo endoscopic brain surgery and a spinal fusion.
As a result, Lisa will be out of work for some time and may need future surgeries to help with her condition.
Her friends and family have organized a benefit to help offset Lisa's medical costs and other financial burdens.
Additionally, funds will go toward the creation of a much-needed ramp outside of Lisa's home.
Organizers are requesting donations for the basket raffle, including gift certificates. Food donations to be served at the benefit are graciously accepted. Monetary donations are greatly appreciated.
For more information, to make a donation or purchase tickets, please contact Cheryl at 716-949-6070, Ron at 716-903-8143, or Glenda at 716-773-7676, ext. 103.
