A friend of the community was recently diagnosed with lymphoma. His name is Barrett and he needs our help with bills & medical expenses during his treatment. A benefit this weekend has been planned to help him during this challenging time.

Join us this Saturday, October 6th at Aces & Eights Saloon in Cedar Rapids. There will be live music, a silent auction, baked goods, Q Dogs BBQ, balloon animals and much more. T-shirts and bracelets will also be for sale with all proceeds going to Barrett.

The event starts at noon and won't end until 2 a.m. Even if you can only stop by for a short visit, I know Barrett would love to see you. He has so many friends here in Eastern Iowa....... but I know he'd love to have more!

If you want to donate something directly to the cause, call 319-720-0280. Aces & Eights is located at 62 16th Avenue SW in Cedar Rapids.

I'll see you there!
