Fire Department, others hold spaghetti fundraiser Saturday for Granite Quarry woman
GRANITE QUARRY ó Friends of an East Rowan woman struggling with multiple medical problems are holding a spaghetti dinner fundraiser Saturday evening at the Granite Quarry Fire Department.
Kim Beeker, who is in her early 30s, suffers with cystic fibrosis and diabetes and underwent a liver transplant in 1996. She may have to undergo another transplant in the future.
Beeker’s husband, Charlie, is the former chief of the Granite Quarry Fire Department and is now a deputy with the Rowan County Sheriff’s Department.
The family’s health insurance does not cover all of Kim Beeker’s bills and medicines. The Fire Department and Joe Goodnight, owner of Granite Auto Parts, have held several fundraisers for the family in the past.
The spaghetti dinner takes place from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday. Organizers are asking for a minimum donation of $5 from those attending and will accept more.
Other donations can be sent to Granite Quarry Town Hall, in care of Beeker, P.O. Box 351, Granite Quarry, NC 28072.
For more information, call Goodnight at 704-209-3031.
