Benefit basket party Sept. 8

A group of friends and family are organizing a benefit basket party to help one of their own.

“Paul’s Pin to Win,” a benefit group for Whitehall resident Paul Wager, are hosting a basket party on Saturday, Sept. 8, at Whitehall High School.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Wager and his family.

Wager, who lives in the village of Whitehall and is a familiar face at local sporting events, is undergoing chemotherapy to fight a form of lymphoma. He has undergone two treatments, but will have travel to Dartmouth at least six more times.

Doors to the basket party will open at 10:30 a.m. and drawings will begin at 12:30 p.m. Admission is $5.

Nearly 50 people have pledged to donate items for the party and anyone interested in putting together a basket can drop off donations from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 4, at the Whitehall Recreation Center.

Anyone who is unable to make it can contact Beth Molinero at Berkshire Bank on West Street in Rutland or at 745-4343 to arrange an alternate time or to have items picked up.

Monetary donations can be mailed to Paul Wager Benefit c/o Beth Molinero, PO Box 263, Whitehall, NY 12887.

For more information and updates on Wager’s condition, visit the Facebook group “Paul’s Pin to Win.”
