Catawba Student Government fundraiser
The Catawba College Student Government Association and friends and family of 14-year-old Josh Lippard of Salisbury are sponsoring a Port-A-Pit Chicken Fundraiser to raise funds for his medical treatment.
The event will be held 11 a.m. to 4 pm. April 19 at North Hill Christian School, 2970 W. Innes St.
According to SGA President Cecilia Runge, an earlier SGA-sponsored fundraiser held in conjunction with local restaurant Five Guys Famous Burgers & Fries raised $857 to help Lippard.
Lippard was injured two months ago when a large tree limb fell and hit his shoulder, severing the brachial artery in his left arm. His parents, Keith and Cheryl Lippard of Salisbury, did not have health insurance.
The Lippards’ church, Franklin Baptist, has participated by receiving funds designated for Lippard’s treatment to be mailed there.
Tickets to the upcoming fundraiser are available at firstname.lastname@example.org or Simply Good, Rouser Automotive Parts, American Family Chiropractic, Cornerstone Baptist, the YMCA, Rowan Decorating and The Inn.
