Your view: Benefit planned

Thursday, December 18, 2003

A benefit auction will begin at 8 p.m. Friday at Dixie's (formerly Diana's Lounge) 2301 E. Malone Ave. behind China Pearl. Proceeds will benefit George and D.J. Parr who lost their 8-week-old daughter, Katie, Parr to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) on Nov. 15.

Area businesses have found it in their hearts to donate to this very worthy cause. Items to be auctioned or raffled include: a leather jacket valued at $200; a 12-string acoustic guitar valued at $300; NASCAR collectibles; gift certificate from area businesses including Hittman Tattoo, Applebee's, El Tapitio, Dexter Bar-B-Que; and other items too numerous to mention.

Please join us in helping this much deserving family.
