The doors will be open January 16 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at Schoolcraft High School for an Arts and Crafts show that will serve as a fundraiser to help a Schoolcraft family in need. The family of Cathy VerHey, who is battling ALS–amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease–will receive donations from the vendors selling at the show, as well as those in attendance wishing to donate. Almost 100 vendors have already signed up for the show. Schoolcraft High School will also offering concessions.
The event coordinator, Julie Tiller, simply asks people to “donate from your heart.” Tiller organized a similar event in Climax to help a family coping with cancer which raised over $3,300. “I can’t promise people how much they might make at the Arts and Crafts show, but I can promise them that together we can make a difference in someone’s life,” Tiller said.
