AHWAHNEE – The nonprofit organization Helping One Woman (HOW) will meet on Wednesday, Mar. 18, in support of long-time local resident Marsha McCarty.
“Marsha and her husband Rick have lived in our area for over 30 years,” say organizers. “She has worked her whole life until she was diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2014 and it has since moved to her brain. She and her body are accepting treatments well to this point. Rick and son Lance have been by her side for her doctor appointments and treatments. Rick works a job that is seasonal so this is a great opportunity to help a loving couple in our amazing mountain area.”
HOW is rallying around Marsha to lend a hand as needed. Attendees will gather at The Hitching Post in Ahwahnee at 6 p.m.; reservations are requested. Phone (559) 683-7917 to let them know you’re coming.
Those participating in the HOW benefit dinner will place $10 or more toward a contribution for Marsha, and pay for their own dinners. HOW promises that “every last penny of the proceeds from the prize drawing, as well as everything collected from attendees as they come in the door, that is $10 per person, will go directly to Marsha at the end of the evening. Absolutely nothing is kept by the organization or anyone else.”
Community members or businesses who would like to donate an item to the prize drawing can contact Val at (559) 283-8717 or Kris at (559) 641-8299 or drop off at Oakhurst Giftworks. For more information contact organizers via Facebook.
