Friday dinner to benefit firefighter’s family

Baby Olivia Rose Chavez has spent most of her life in the hospital.

Olivia was born in April with Downs Syndrome and multiple health issues. She underwent a surgery in May, a surgery in July to repair multiple holes in her heart, and has just recently been able to come home.

Since Olivia’s birth, her father, Omar, a member of the Advance Fire Department, is the only parent who has been able to work. Her mother, Mandy, and 3-year-old brother Elijah, have spent most of their time in the hospital with baby Olivia.

On Friday, July 27, the Advance Fire Department will host a fundraiser for the Chavez family to assist with the financial burdens that a lengthy hospital stay can cause.

The menu will be homemade spaghetti, salad, bread, and dessert.

There will also be a silent auction, a dessert auction, and a date night basket raffle.

Dinner will be served from 5-8 p.m.  Dine in and take out is available.

The event will take place at the old Advance Fire Department building at 169 Fire Station Road.

To contribute a dessert to the dessert auction or preorder take out, contact Benita Finney at 336-671-0343.
