A benefit to raise money for Dewie to help with out-of-district tuition at Tri-City Schools will be held Saturday, February 6 at the AIW Hall in Decatur from 4 pm - midnight. It will feature local bands, with a $10 admission for the bands and dinner. There will also be a live auction, silent auction, alcohol walk, bake sale and a raffle. Proceeds will go toward Dewie's education. For more information, call David at 217-994-1175. Donations can also be made at the Lincoln Land Credit Union in the name of Barbara Perdu.
Dewie tragically lost his father Rob when he was swept into a river in Christian County on his way home from a concert in Taylorville during the flooding on December 29 and he had previously lost his mother to cancer. He would love to finish his schooling at Tri-City High School even while living with his aunt. This fundraiser should be a good start.
