Published DateGILFORD – Mark your calendar for Sunday, July 14 when the local community will rally around one of its own fighting breast cancer.
Cindy Lou LaPointe has been through five surgeries in the past six months due to breast cancer, and as a result, has been unable to work. Her son, Shane Morrissette of Gilford, along with other community members, are organizing a benefit as a way to raise money to help offset her medical costs and support her during this difficult time.
The event will be held at the Gilford Elks Lodge at 7 Sugarbush Lane beginning at 1 p.m. Live music will be provided from Rockerbox, Wiseguy, Cody James and Adam Weston, along with food and a silent auction with items from local restaurants and businesses. Admission is $10 at the door and guests are encouraged to wear pink.
Those who cannot attend but would like to make a donation, checks are payable to the Cindy Lou LaPointe Fund, c/o Shane Morrissette, PO Box 1113, Laconia NH 03247.
