Benefit slated for Cheryl Jackson
January 4, 2013
bowl-a-thon and raffle fundraiser will be held
at AJ's Lanes, 6696 South Main, to help Cheryl
Jackson, Bonners Ferry, and her family as she
undergoes treatment for stage four
Cheryl, who has served as a local volunteer
firefighter for more than five years, has
already undergone two surgeries for her
condition, which is the most severe,
debilitating and painful stage of the disease,
and she needs at least one and possibly more
surgeries to defeat it.
Married to Gus Jackson and the mother of two,
the treatments have strained the family
financially, and all help is appreciated.
The bowl-a-thon will go on from 10 a.m. to 8
p.m. Saturday, January 12, and raffle drawings
will be held during the event for two 10-pound
boxes of smoked salmon shipped from Tonka
Seafoods in her hometown of Petersburg, Alaska,
each valued at $250.
The winners get their choice of original, Cajun,
peppered or a combination of the three flavors.
You do not have to be present to win.
Raffle tickets are $5 each and they're available
now at Liberty Gas, 6856 Main Street, Bonners
Ferry, or by calling Cheryl at (208) 597-2942.
You can sign up for the event and show your
support on the bowl-a-thon event page on
