Cancer benefit scheduled
for Saturday in Weirton
WEIRTON — A cancer benefit for Weirton resident Sam Osborne will be held from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday at the Sport’s Court Lounge, 3134 Pennsylvania Ave., sponsor.
A $10 entry fee includes food. There will two 50-50 drawings, one conducted from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., the other from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.; live music by D.C. Cardelli and others from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.; Bipp and Erin Woods will serve as DJs from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.; and there will be a Chinese auction at 6 p.m.
An Army veteran, Osborne was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer a year and a half ago and underwent surgery at Cleveland Clinic, according to a promotional flier. While he was undergoing treatment, the water pipes in his home froze and burst, causing extensive water damage and making it currently uninhabitable due to the growth of mold, which now has to be removed, the flier reads. “With the overbearing costs of high medical bills and now the added renovation costs, Sam has found himself in financial distress,” the flier notes.
For information, contact Janna or Karen at (304) 723-4562 or Trudy at (412) 613-4373.
