“Gift of Hope”for Thea…

BBQ, Silent Auction, Live Music April 20

Thea Marie Keskinen-Burke a cheerful, adorable, six-year-old girl, and a source of joy to everyone she meets, has been given the “Gift of Hope” this year. Thea has never met a person she could not make smile. She loves God and her family, and it shines through in everything she does. A benefit for Thea, who suffers from Generalized Idiopathic Epilepsy, will be held Saturday, April 20 from 11 am-1pm including a BBQ plate sale, live music and entertainment as well as a silent auction. See more details at end of article.

Through the Gift of Hope, they hope to provide funds to give hope to Thea, who has been praying for a very “special dog” that will allow for her to keep up with her three older siblings and have more independence. Funds raised will help get the Seizure response dog (SRD) that Thea needs.
