Jordan will be 14 in June. Her family has lived through tragedy in the last few years, according to HOW organizers. On March, 10, Jordan’s sister Jenna, 16, was found deceased in her car, submerged in a pond in Coarsegold.
The girls had been living with their grandfather, who was raising them alone since the loss of their father and grandmother two years ago.
“We desire to bless this family with love and financial assistance,” say HOW volunteers. Sponsors for Jordan’s dinner include Amanda Patterson, Christina DeGracia, and Rachel Mayer. As always, items for the raffle can be dropped off at Tokens Gift & Thrift shop, located at 40410 CA-41 in Oakhurst.
Those participating in the HOW benefit will place $10 or more toward a contribution for Jordan, and pay for their own dinners. Proceeds from the evening go directly to Jordan at the end of the evening.
The Pines is offering a limited menu on Apr. 19, with a choice of six plates. A vegetarian option is included. Please RSVP by Monday, Apr. 17.
HOW says that “one woman with $10 can buy another woman lunch. Ten women giving $10 can buy another woman’s groceries. One hundred women giving $10 can make a real difference in another woman’s life.”
