District Events- February 2013
3 Children Lose Both Parents Only Weeks Apart- Community Fundraiser Will Help Family
All are invited, and encouraged, to attend the Dearborn Community Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser to help the Cannizzaro family. The event will take place on Wednesday, March 6, 2013, from 4:00-8:00 pm at the Ford Performing Arts Center, 15801 Michigan Ave., Dearborn 48126.
In December of 2012 Niki Cannizzaro lost her battle with cancer. Barely a month later, on January 20, the three Cannizzaro children lost their father, Ray, to a pulmonary embolism. Now, their grandmother, Shirley Sironen, has stepped up to raise the three children.
“I don’t need anything, I have all I need. I just want to be able to provide the food, clothes and other items that my grandchildren need now and in the future,” commented Ms. Sironen.
The event will also feature a tin can raffle, music, and face painting for kids. Tickets are priced at $10 Adults, $5 Children (age 2 and under free). Donated desserts will be available for an additional cost.
The event is sponsored by the City of Dearborn, Dearborn Public Schools, Dearborn Firefighters Burn Drive, Gary Kuhlmann from Park Place Banquet Hall and Catering, adult and student community service groups, and many other caring individuals!
There will also be an adult only afterglow with a cash bar at the Biergarten located at 22184 Michigan Ave., Dearborn, starting at 8:00 pm. The afterglow will feature plenty of fun with karaoke and guest bartenders from the Dearborn Firefighters Burn Drive and other local celebrities!
