Chuckwagon Chow-Down to help raise funds for Levi Foreman

Calling it a “Chuckwagon Chow-Down,” a group of friends are organizing a fundraiser on Oct. 24 to help Levi Foreman, a young Liberal boy who is undergoing treatments for a rare brain tumor. Organizers are looking for both silent and live auction items as well as food donations.
“We’ve got a great start on items,” said Leasa Anderson, one of the organizers. “Right now we’ve got two roasters of chili, a roaster of turkey and noodles and a roaster of ham and beans planned with bread, desserts and drinks.”
However, she said that organizers are still looking for silent and live auction items. “Obviously the more items we have, the more money we are going to be able to raise to help with Levi’s medical expenses. He’s doing great right now but he still has three more months of treatment. After his Nov. 5 surgery, his condition had to be treated with over a year of chemo and radiation therapy.” Levi, the son of Nathan and Sarah Foreman, is receiving treatment at the Children’s Hospital in Denver.
The doors will open at 6 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 24, for dinner and the silent auction. Admission is a free-will offering. The live auction with Mayor Joe Denoyer as the auctioneer, will start at 7 p.m. The event is being held at the Friends Church Activity Building, 1650 N. Western.
Anyone interested in donating food or auction items can contact Anderson at 620-309-9060, Denoyer at 620-391-1538, or Kay Burtzloff at 620-629-0203.
