Event Description

Family, friends and loved ones will be holding a benefit for Trisha Reyes, daughter of Juan and Rebecca Reyes, from Mohawk & Ilion, NY. Trisha was born with Down Syndrome along with a hole in her heart. When she was just 16 months old she had open-heart surgery and was told that she would never walk or make it past the age of six. Not only did she defy the doctors by learning how to walk at the age of 2 but now she is 28 years old! Unfortunately within the last four months she has fallen quite ill and has become wheelchair bound. She has been diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure, Pulmonary Hypertension and Cirrhosis of the Liver, among other health issues and recently underwent a tracheotomy.

Join us in making this benefit a success, as the family is encountering mounting medical, travel, and household expenses. Our donation tickets are $25.00 per couple, $35.00 per family or $15.00 for individuals and children 12 and under are free.

There will be a Chinese auction, a 50/50 raffle, various door prize drawings, food and drinks along with The Loco Brothers providing musical entertainment

Please help support this local family's benefit!
