Local 3 year old boy, Connor Ruisz, was diagnosed in January with an aggresive form of cancer called Medulloblastoma.
Since then his life has been filled with doctor visits, chemotherapy, radiation and blood transfusions.
Connor’s mom, Katy, took a leave of absence from her job to be at her son’s side. The costs of medications, therapy and treatment have far exceeded what the family is able to bear.
A fundraiser has been organized to help ease some of the financial strain on the Ruisz family.
Tickets are being pre-sold at $25/adult and $10/per child. At the door prices are $30/adult and $10/per child. Children 5 and under are free.
Included with admission cost is “Full buffet dinner, beer, wine, pop and water. A Band – “The Coolionies”, a DJ, Comedian and Author Tracy DeGraaf as our MC, a Kids Corner with a clown, face painting, games and more!!”
When….Saturday July 9th 3pm-8pm
Where….115 Bourbon Street 3359 West 115th Street Merrionette Park, Illinois 60803
