Event Description

Friends of Cheryl Stack will be hosting a special benefit for the family of Cester "Chet" Szeflinski who passed away unexpectedly just before Christmas as a result of a tragic accident on the family farm in the town of Richfield. Cheryl Stack, a teacher at Barrigner Road, and her 3 young children will receive all proceeds from the event.

A Chinese Auction will be the central fundraising effort at the benefit. Many teachers and area businesses have stepped forward with wonderful donations for the auction. There will be a lottery tree, dozens of gift certificates, and over 30 themed gift baskets. There will be refreshments served and with hot dogs, pizza, and baked goods for sale as well. Monetary donations are also welcome at the event.

The event is scheduled from 5-8 PM on Thursday, February 17th. If snow forces a cancellation, the event will be held at the same time and location on Friday, February 18th. Drawings will start between 7:15 and 7:30.
