Pullin’ for Stella June 2 at Camp Manna

Published 10:29 am Thursday, May 24, 2018

Camp Manna will host a sporting clay shoot – Pullin For Stella – on Saturday, June 2 to benefit Stella Ledbetter.

Stella is the 18-month-old daughter of Mindy and Jesse Ledbetter. She was diagnosed with Alper’s syndrome in December of 2017.  Alper’s is a rare an incurable disorder.

The Ledbetters are teachers at Davie High School.  Mindy has taken an indefinite leave of absence from her teaching position in order to care for Stella full-time.  Stella’s condition requires constant medication monitoring, nutritional management from the insertion of a PEG tube, multiple trips to her physician’s office and to Brenner’s Children’s Hospital at NC Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston Salem.

The fundraiser will hopefully assist the Ledbetters financially as they try to overcome their medical and personal financial burdens so they can concentrate solely on caring for Stella.

There is an ongoing raffle to benefit the Ledbetters. The raffle will conclude during the day of the event. First prize is a 12G  Browning Maxus Ultimate Shotgun, value $1800;  second prize is a Large Green Egg Grill, value $800; and third prize is a Yeti cooler, value $300 Tickets are $5 each.  They can be purchased prior to Pullin For Stella or on the event day. You do not have to be present to win. Call Teresa Bivins at 336-284-2438 for advanced ticket purchases.

There will be a silent auction during that day.  Auction items include an autographed copy of Bob Timberlake’s book, “Bob Timberlake’s Letter To Home,” a Bob Timberlake print and a Savage 17 mm rifle and scope with a custom hydrographic design.

A lunch of hamburgers and hotdogs will be provided for all clay shooters and available to others for donations.
