A friend of the community was recently diagnosed with lymphoma. His name is Barrett and he needs our help with bills & medical expenses during his treatment. A benefit this weekend has been planned to help him during this challenging time.

Join us this Saturday, October 6th at Aces & Eights Saloon in Cedar Rapids. There will be live music, a silent auction, baked goods, Q Dogs BBQ, balloon animals and much more. T-shirts and bracelets will also be for sale with all proceeds going to Barrett.

The event starts at noon and won't end until 2 a.m. Even if you can only stop by for a short visit, we know Barrett would love to see you. He has so many friends here in Eastern Iowa....... but we know he'd love to have more!

If you want to donate something directly to the cause, call 319-720-0280. Aces & Eights is located at 62 16th Avenue SW in Cedar Rapids.

I'll see you there!
