Fundraiser for Providence Elementary teacher suffering from Leukemia

A silent auction and raffle, a bake sale, a community yard sale and craft sale will all be included in a fundraiser coming up on Saturday, May 1 to benefit Melanie Balls of Hyde Park. A single mother with two children and a popular teacher at Providence Elementary School, Melanie is undergoing treatment for Leukemia. She is recovering from a stem-cell transplant and since her health will be precarious, she will not be able to return to work for some time. Modifications need to be made to her home for her safety and medical bills from many months in the hospital have been mounting. The fundraiser will be run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Hyde Park Civic Center, 113 East Hyde Park Lane. For more information and to make contributions, contact Cami at 770-0432.
