Dear Friend:

In June of this year our friend Rosanna Russell was diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer. On Saturday, October 20, 2007, there will be a benefit at the Sandy Beach Yacht Club on Grand Island to raise money for our dear friend. She is an Island resident who is a single mother of two teenagers. She has recently finished radiation and chemotherapy treatments and is currently awaiting surgery. The overwhelming costs of doctor visits and lost wages are taking its toll on the family. Today, you can make an immediate difference in the life of Rosanna and her family, by donating items for the “Roses for Rosanna Benefit”. We are looking for gift certificates, gift baskets or items that can be assembled into gift baskets to make this benefit a success. Anything you can help us out with would greatly be appreciated.

We would like to thank you in advance for your support. Please call Janet Bamberg (523-3611) or Jean Greinert (773-7465) if you are able to make a donation or if you have any questions about the Roses for Rosanna Benefit.

With grateful appreciation,

Janet Bamberg
