By Patricia Beech –

A fundraising event benefiting Stephanie Stephens will be held on Saturday, Jan. 28 during the boys basketball game at Peebles High School.
Stephens, who suffers from cystic fibrosis, recently underwent a successful double-lung transplant.
The benefit is being co-sponsored by the Peebles Athletic Boosters and the Peebles fifth grade travel basketball team.
“Stephanie has a huge heart and a giving spirit,” Booster President Amy Huffman Swango said. “We’ve known Stephanie and her family for several years and admire her desire to push through her illness to support her kids in their school and sports events. She is an inspiration to everyone she meets.”
Those attending the event will have the opportunity to bid on gift baskets donated by local businesses according to co-organizer Jen Schoonover. “We’ll also be auctioning off two basketballs signed by both teams, and a basketball jersey from the 1998 Varsity Girls team who participated in the state tournament.”
Stephens is required to make frequent trips to the Cleveland Clinic during her recuperation. Funds raised during the benefit will help the family meet the considerable expenses not covered by their insurance.
“The Peebles Athletic Boosters work hard to support the athletes of PHS, and when we have the opportunity to help with special fundraisers for someone in our community, we’re always happy to pitch in,” Swango said. “We hope everyone comes out Saturday night and shows their support for this beautiful wife and mother.”
If anyone would like to donate items for the Silent Auction or make a monetary donation, please contact Amy Swango at (937587-1374 or Jeni Schoonover at (937) 217-1665.
