If you missed the May 10th Austin Manz Benefit Craft Show, you missed a fun event at St. Francis Parish Finley Hall.

Mom, Austin and Aunt Anna

 Despite the rain, over 300 people came out to buy from the vendors, enjoy lunch, take some chances on the Chinese auction baskets, and spend some time with Austin. There were 74 Chinese auction baskets, all donated, and the luncheon items and donated baked goods were all sold out by mid-afternoon.

Mary Jane Jurofciik, the organizer for this event, is at the top of the list for thanks, but she wishes to thank all who helped make the event a success - vendors, helpers, donators and attendees. The list is long. She especially wants to thank Mr. William Callaway and members of the Ringgold High School Interact Club who showed up at 7 a.m. to help the vendors unload and set up their stands.

The family adds their thanks to all who participated. They feel grateful and blessed by the out-pouring of help from our community to help support Austin's medical needs.
