The North Baltimore Eagles Aerie #2633 held a benefit Oct. 20 for the Cancer Fund, surprising a local who is battling cancer.
Marv McCartney was the surprise beneficiary of the fun evening that included Walleye Dinners and raffles.
Marv has prostate cancer, receiving chemo every three weeks. Marv has worked at D. S. Brown for over 40 years.
Gary Bretz, commenting for the local Eagles Club said that, "we're people helping people and that's what we try to do." Bretz said that the following donated items:
Newark Novelty (Bob Wilson)
Virginia Motion Pictures
FOE 2633 Auxiliary
Gary also wanted to thank the kitchen and raffle help, including:
Mary Lou Folk
"We had a really good day for Marv and we appreciate all of the help," Bretz added.
This Oct. 20 fundraiser was supposed to be fundraiser for Kim Gustwiller, who was charged with theft by deception for faking cancer and raising money for medical treatments, for a disease she did not have.
