Valley Warriors Against Cancer’s biggest fundraiser of the year starts today.
Valley Warriors is a group dedicated to helping people fighting cancer in Stevens County, and they count on the community’s help to make that happen. The group is hosting a fundraiser featuring a plant sale, a market, a silent auction and more.
Organizers say they will use that money to help cancer patients cover treatment costs and other expenses. Secretary Shawn Albright says the cause is a personal one for all of the volunteers.
“Every Valley warrior has been touched by cancer,” Albright said. “Every one of us. We have lost somebody. Some of them are cancer survivors.”
Organizers say they are still accepting last-minute vendors. Reservations are $20. The fundraiser begins at 8 a.m. on Friday, May 17 at Valley Park and runs through Saturday, May 18.
