On Sunday, May 24 from 11:00-3:00 there will be a fundraiser, held at the American Legion Hall Post 207, 163 Bar Harbor Road in Trenton, for Cait Kelly. Cait was diagnosed several months ago with breast cancer. She is just 32 years old.
Cait’s boyfriend is John Reeves of Trenton. Cait and John are a couple that is just beginning their life together. Now life has thrown them a curve.
In the Maine tradition of neighbor helping neighbor, this fundraiser is being held to not only raise funds to help Cait as she battles cancer, but to also be a show of support to her as she takes the necessary steps to get her strength and health back. A public Facebook Event page “Cure for Cait” has been set up to allow people to learn about some of the items in the auctions, more info about Cait and how they can help. Cait and John’s story can also be found on the FaceBook page.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          There will be silent, Chinese and live auctions..
