Fundraiser Details

Seven years ago Patrice Kilo of Strongsville received the news that all families pray not to hear. She was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and began her fight against this horrible disease. For over four years things were looking good and the cancer was in remission... unfortunately the cancer metastasized in her liver and hip bone three years ago and Patrice is now in the fight of her life.  Due to neuropathy in her hands and feet, Patrice now needs assistance to walk or even hold a cup.

Patrice was employed over thirty-four years at a downtown lawfirm, and has recently been laid off due to company cutbacks and will no longer have insurance coverage. Cobra insurance coverage is very costly but a must have. John, Patrice's husband of 35 years is owner operator of J&R Remodeling.  John and Patrice have been together since they were 16 and have 2 children, John & Nick.

Family, friends and loved ones will be holding a benefit on April 4th 2014 at Michaud's on 16808 Pearl Road in Strongsville from 7pm-12am. Today we are asking you to help us make this a success, as the family is encountering mounting medical and household bills. A Chinese raffle and silent auction will be featured at our benefit. Please help support this local family's benefit by donating cash, buying a ticket or a table (8 seats per table),  donating an item or basket for the auction.  All donations big and small are greatly excepted, as we would be honored for you to help us out.

Along with a disc jockey, we will have food, beer, and soda (wash). Our donation tickets are $35/adult and $20/ under 21 or high school student. Please dress casual, you may also BYOB.

Any contributions will be greatly appreciated by the Kilo Family. Lets all remember 4/4 for Patrice <3
No tickets will be sold at the door!  You must purchase tickets by April 1st to attend the benefit.
