What: Jim & Deb Gerardy Benefit
When: Sunday, December 7, 2014, 11 AM to 3 PM
Where: Pearson Hall, Jackson County Fairgrounds, 1212 E. Quarry
Jim was diagnosed with two masses in the prostate and has undergone 3 surgeries, only to have the masses return leaving him in chronic pain and partially disabled. Deb was diagnosed with a cystic neoplasm of the pancreas resulting in more medical treatment and additional expense. Over the past 3 years the ongoing medical bills have become overwhelming. Jim & Deb are big supporters of their community and have donated thousands for various projects throughout the county through their local talent shows. The committee is hoping to give back to them this time around as they are good people.
