A benefit will be held for the Brown family this Friday, May 10 from 4:30–8 p.m. in the Parish Life Center at St. Caspar’s Catholic Church in Wauseon.
Sara Brown, a Wauseon School teacher and her husband, Chris Brown’s son Abram was born last November. When the infant was only ten days old, he was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder, of which there are only 50 known cases worldwide.
Sara has taken a leave of absence from her second-grade teaching job, and the community is coming together to help the Brown family offset the staggaring medical costs.
A meal — including burgers, brats, hot dogs, and more — will be available for a free-will donation, and dine-in and carry-out service is available.
A live auction will be held at 7 p.m., as well as a 50/50 drawing, and bid-and-buy gift baskets will be available featuring everything from gourmet foods and Ohio State gear to health and beauty products and wine.
Monetary donations can also be made to the Brown Family Fund at any F & M Bank branch.
