Groups plan fundraiser to help family with medical costs

You can help 6-year-old Jacob Greene fight cancer.

That’s the plea today from friends who are sponsoring a Port-A-Pit fundraiser for Jacob, the son of Tim and Treshell Greene, who has battled cancer since he was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia in 2004.

The fundraiser will take place Feb. 24, a Saturday, from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. at Franklin Baptist Church’s Family Life Center, 3810 U.S. 601. Participants may dine in or take out during those hours, says Mandy Fuqua, a physician assistant at Rowan Family Physicians.

A silent auction will also take place from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Tickets cost $7 per plate and are available at Rowan Family Physicians, 650 Julian Road, and North Hills Christian School, 2970 W. Innes St. You also can call Kim Rivers at 704-642-8569.

Several groups have banded together to sponsor the benefit dinner to help with medical costs.

Those who do not want to buy tickets or participate in the fundraiser can make a donation to the Jacob Greene Benefit Fund by depositing it in any branch of SunTrust Bank in Salisbury.
