Benefit Dinner this Sunday for Cyndi MacMaster and her family in Gardiner
I've known Scott (Scotty) MacMaster for many years. From disc-jockey at Upstairs/Downstairs in Augusta in our younger days to Richmond's Chief of Police today. He, like all of us, has faced his ups and downs but now, he faces the biggest challenge of his life...taking care of the family as his wife, Cyndi, battles cancer.
Cyndi is always smiling. How can she not? She is surrounded by the loves of her life and a great group of loving friends and family. The sad truth is, however, it'll take more than just a great attitude to pay for what is needed now and in the future for the MacMasters.
Cyndi has cervical cancer with metastasis in the liver. The mounting costs of travel, lodging and treatment come with a huge price...mentally, physically and monetarily.
Some of the mental and monetary anguish can be relieved, if only just a little, with your support this Sunday, 12/21, at Gardiner Area High School.
There's going to be a luncheon to help defray some of the costs associated with Cyndi's treatment.
There will be two seatings for easier flow, one at 11am and one at 1pm. There will a 50/50 raffle and a silent auction with an array of items donated from the community. There will also be a raffle for a lifetime gift certificate to The Red Barn in Augusta.
If you're unable to attend the event on Sunday, there is a GoFundMe account set up for the family.
Please, if you can, join me in helping this wonderful central Maine family.
