For a Good Cause...

I have had the same person, Shirley, cut my hair since I was in high school. (Barring a few trips to WalMart when she or I was out of town. But the haircuts were never the same!) Recently, her daughter Ashley had a baby. After a healthy and uneventful pregnancy, they found out that he had a rare lung disorder and didn't produce the surfactant needed for our lungs to stay inflated. He spent about 6 weeks at Primary Children's and Ogden hospitals, but just couldn't fight hard enough to make it. Some friends of Ashley's have decided to do a benefit dinner for them to help with medical bills. I know that most of you don't know her, but if you are thinking of going on a date night or just don't want to cook, this is a great restaurant and is certainly for a good cause. Here is the info...

Most of you know Daryl and Ashley Larsen. For those of you who don't, they are a young couple in Perry, who just lost their baby to a rare lung disorder. Their loss is truly a tragedy. They are now experiencing the beginnings of what will be a land slide of medical bills. In an effort to aide them, there will be a one day fundraiser at the Maddox Steak House. On November 5, you can call Maddox at (435)723-2916 and order the Turkey Steak dinner. You can choose the 2 or 4 family meal at the regular price. All proceeds will then be donated to the Larsen family. You do need to remember to mention the Larsen family name when ordering. You can then pick up your meal at the take out window in the back of Maddox. It will be for lunch and dinner. Please spread the word. Feel free to copy and paste this post on your blog.
