Spaghetti dinner to benefit local woman injured in crash

Friends and family of the young woman injured in a head-on collision last week will hold a benefit spaghetti dinner to help cover the cost of her medical treatment.

The meal will be held from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 3, at Ma and Pa’s Place, 33 Quaker St. in Granville.

“A hundred people have asked how they can help, this is how they can help,” said Tammy Rescott, the victim’s mother.

Kaylee Rescott, of Granville, was seriously injured on Nov. 12 when she was involved in a head-on collision on Route 22A near Raceville and Butler roads. Eighty percent of her bones were broken and a full recovery is expected to take months.

Her one-year-old son, Connor, was in the car at the time of the accident but has returned home.

“Bottom line is she’ll spend the next three to four months at Albany Med. and then another six to eight months at a rehab center,” her mother said.

The cost of the meal is $5.50 to eat in and $6.50 for take out. There will also be a raffle and tickets are available for $1 or six for $5.

The family has also set up accounts at TD Bank and Glens Falls National Bank.

in Kaylee’s name.

Besides helping with medical expenses, Tammy Rescott said the support of the community will go a long ways in helping her daughter recover.

“This will make her feel so good,” she said. “She’s a fighter.”
