Elks Lodge #877 in Haverstraw will host a fundraiser on Sunday, August 26th, from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. to raise money for Gabrielle DiCarlo. She is a five year old from North Rockland with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma. The fundraiser will include a BBQ, live music by local band Little Rusty, a raffle and 50/50. Tickets are $50 per person, and children under 12 are free.
Gabrielle was diagnosed with cancer in December 2011 and has already bravely undergone multiple surgeries and rounds of chemotherapy. This medical treatment has been very difficult not only for Gabrielle, but also for Gabrielle's mother, father, and older sisters. The Elks Lodge is holding this fundraiser to offset the cost of Gabrielle's treatments and medications, as the family's insurance will no longer pay for further treatment.
Persons interested in attending this event or making a donation to help Gabrielle and her family should contact Joe Solari at 845-323-1562 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For further information about Gabrielle and her family's plight, visit her mother's blog at http://support4gabrielle.com.
