Fundraiser Saturday to help Erie man

ERIE – A fundraiser on Saturday will assist an Erie man with medical and other expenses after he fell multiple stories in January.

Jeremy Brown, 20, is the son of Brenda Brown of Clinton, Iowa, and Larry Brown of Erie. He was injured Jan. 12 at the Holiday Inn in Rock Island.

Brown broke his right leg, right wrist and at least three or four bones in his left foot.

He was going to enter the Navy, but can no longer do so.

The benefit will begin at 2 p.m. at the Erie High School commons, 435 Sixth Ave. There will be no cost to attend, and food will be sold, with walking tacos, hot dogs, and barbecue available.

A bags tournament will take place, with a blind draw for two-person teams. The cost is $10 a person. Registration will begin at 2 p.m., with a 3:30 p.m. start.

A cash raffle will take place, with tickets for $1 each, $5 for six, and $10 for an arm’s length.

A silent auction will include St. Louis Cardinals tickets and other prizes. Route 88 will perform.

Auction donations may be made by contacting Shelly Carder at 309-515-0027 or Tammy Paxton at 815-499-3828.

Financial donations can be made to the Jeremy Brown Fund at First Trust and Savings Bank, 700 Main St., Erie.
