Benefit to be held for Roy Skinner Jr.

On June 28th, friends of Roy Skinner Jr. will hold a benefit pig roast to help pay for upgrading Roy’s home with wheelchair access. Roy, 35, is a former member of IUEC Local 17 who left the trade after an August 2011 motorcycle crash left him paralyzed from the waist down.

There will be games, door prizes, a 50-50 raffle along with a Chinese auction of gift baskets. Those attending are encouraged to bring side dishes in disposable containers. A portion of the cash donations will be given to the National Spinal Cord Injury Association Foundation at Metro General Hospital.

The fundraiser will start at noon at 8983 Westlawn Blvd., Olmsted Falls, Ohio. For more information on the event and how you can help out, contact Kathy Caruso at kittykat2nv@gmail.com or RSVP at royskinnertwo@gmail.com by June 15th.
