A benefit dinner for seven year-old Alexis Ackley of Jamestown will take place on Saturday, Aug. 9 from 3 to 7 p.m. at the House That Jack Built in Greenhurst, N.Y.
Alexis has been diagnosed with cancer and on June 2, she had her kidney removed and will now be undergoing chemotherapy until at least December. Proceeds from the event will go to help her family cover costs associated with treatment, which include travel expenses and medical bills. The benefit will include a Chicken Barbecue dinner, Chinese Auction, 50/50 drawings and entertainment. The cost for the dinner is $8.50 and RSVPs are appreciated prior to the day of the benefit. Local businesses are encouraged to donate items for the Chinese Auction.
