A spaghetti dinner fundraiser and auction for a family that will be faced with medical bills and funeral costs will be held from 6 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7, at the FOP Hall, 7846 Leavenworth Road.
Joe and Sarah Boatwright are facing increased expenses as they are expecting a baby with a birth defect called anencephaly. The condition makes it impossible for the child to survive more than a short time after birth, according to the family of the couple.
Donations of auction items for the fundraiser and money are needed for the event.
Monetary donations may be made to the Boatwright Baby Fund, care of U.S. Bank, 13020 Canaan Drive, Bonner Springs, Kan. 66012.
Those who are interested in donating items for the auction may contact Jamie Shell at 913-745-4218 or JShell@kc.rr.com.
