AVON —The Avon Community delivered this past Monday raising over $5,000 to help Pam Edwards.
In the gymnasium it was a staff vs community basketball game with celebrity appearance by Jason “J-Mac” McElwain. Dancers from Miss Natales Dance Center and the Avon Cheerleaders performed as well.
“To be part of the Avon community has always been a big part of my life but tonight highlighted exactly why I love this little town so so much.” said Ashley Herkimer onher Facebook page. “What a beautiful turn out to support a wonderful family.”
Edwards is currently battling cancer and the money will help cover expenses as she undergoes chemotherapy treatment and a stem cell transplant in the coming weeks. The event was organized by Natale and Josh Harter.
