By Mark Carpenter –

A benefit will be held this Friday, May 27 for 11-year old Drew Reid and his family. Drew was unexpectedly diagnosed with a brain tumor and recently left for Chicago where he will receive a six-week proton radiation treatment which is not yet available at Children’s Hospital in Cincinnati.

After completion of that rigorous six weeks of treatment, Drew will return to Children’s in Cincinnati to begin chemotherapy treatments. Drew is a student in the North Adams School District and a member of the North Adams football program.

Friday’s benefit will be held at North Adams High School in Seaman and the doors open at 5 p.m., followed by a taco dinner and silent auction, both of which begin at 5:30 p.m. The silent auction ends at 7:30 p.m. when a live auction will begin.

Tickets can be ordered now at DrewsTroops@yahoo.com or purchased the night of the benefit. T-shirts will also be available.

All the proceeds from the benefit will help the family with the expenses they incur while in Chicago. It is also hoped that the proceeds will be sufficient enough to supplement Drew’s’ father Brandon’s income beyond the two weeks of vacation he receives, enabling him to be in Chicago with his family.

If you have any questions or wish to just make a donation, go to DrewsTroops@yahoo.com.
