Friday night at Bird & Beckett there was a great gathering of food, fun, friends and jazz… all to benefit well-known gal about the village, Blanche Bebb, who recently had a stroke. Friend, family and supporters gathered to raise money to help her pay for rehab therapy so she can be back to us soon.
The event raised “$3,000 plus” and there are a lot of envelopes that haven’t been opened yet, says owner Eric Whittington. That should allow Blanche to get another month of rehabilitation and speech therapy, he says. During the evening her granddaughter sent her photos and video so Blanche could see it from her hospital bed, Whittington says.
Thanks to the Canyon Market, which helped donate food for the fete!
