A benefit will be held this Saturday for a 4-year-old diagnosed with leukemia.
The benefit is for Briggs Davis who was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia just before his fourth birthday. He is currently undergoing treatment at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital, treatment which is likely to last for years.
To help the family with what is sure to be an expensive time, volunteers have scheduled a benefit at Covenant Academy this Saturday. The event will feature a carnival theme with many activities for kids, including face painting, inflatables, balloon animals, dunking booth and more. Among those in the dunking booth will be Mayor Jimmy Haley, Public Defender John Partin and Cole Taylor. The carnival will last from 3 to 5 p.m. Carnival admission is $10.
A silent auction will begin at 3 p.m. featuring scores of donated items. A BBQ dinner will be served at $8 per person. A live auction will begin at 6:30 p.m. and there will also be a drawing for several donated prizes including a Ruger 22-caliber rifle, a kayak, a handmade farm table, and a cash prize. A donation of $1 is asked for the drawing. All proceeds with go to benefit Briggs and his fight against cancer.
Donations may be made at First National Bank under the name of Briggs Davis for those who want to contribute to the fund.
