Party/BBQ/Yard-sale/Bake-sale/Silent Auction/Raffle to benefit Masai Kenyatta.

...There will be something for everyone!

FOOD - JR JUMPHOUSE - DJ AND LIVE MUSIC - GAMES AND TOYS FOR KIDS - ITEMS FOR SALE AND UP FOR BID IN A SILENT AUCTION - LOTS AND LOTS OF FOOD AND CUPCAKES! PUNCH AND PIE?!

Loving spouse, son, uncle and friend to many, Masai has been in the hospital since August 24th battling encephalitis and the doctors can't figure out the primary cause of it. He is on life support and fighting for his life. Complications have led to collapsed lungs and paralysis.

This fundraiser/benefit is being organized in hopes of immediately raising funds to help with bills that have accumulated while he and his long-time girlfriend Trista have been unable to work. In the more long-term scope of things, money is also needed for his medical bills. His job as a mechanic does not provide coverage and the bills are adding up from his 2+ week hospital stay and endless tests to try to solve this mysterious condition.

Any donations of items to sell or raffle off are appreciated. Volunteers to spread the word, solicit donations from businesses or just help at the event are needed.
