you can help

The bigger Your Beaver County gets, the more people we have contacting us to promote various causes and fundraisers. The overwhelming number of people in Beaver County who are looking to give back to the community or help out friends in difficult circumstances is truly moving.

We should all be proud to call these people our neighbors.

Here are some of the outstanding causes and upcoming fundraisers happening over the next few weeks:

Prom/Formal Dress Sale Fundraiser

There will be a prom/formal dress sale held at First Presbyterian Church in Beaver on Saturday, February 21. This will allow anyone to buy, sell, or donate dresses and all of the money raised will be donated to the Get In Touch Foundation.

If you are just looking for a great deal on a prom dress, the sale will take place from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall at the church. If you are looking to sell or donate a dress to the cause, you can get Stephany’s contact information from the fundraiser’s Facebook page and make arrangements with her!

Midland Night at the Races

On Saturday, February 28, there will be a Night at the Races to raise money for Midland’s Fourth of July Festivities. This event will be held at the Serbian Club in Midland. Doors open at 5:30 pm and races start at 6:30.

There is no cover charge to attend this event, but you must be over the age of 18. There will also be food available for sale, a Chinese auction, door prizes, and other great games!

Mark’s Cancer Fund

While there are plenty of heart-warming stories around Beaver County, there are also stories of people who are struggling. Despite having medical insurance, Mark Klemen has racked up a mountain of debt thanks to his year-long fight with cancer.

Mark is currently juggling his full-time job, a part-time business, raising a 14-year-old daughter, and trying to make sense of the medical bills that keep showing up at his door.

One of Mark’s friends launched a GoFundMe page in hopes that people would chip in to help Mark with paying off some of his medical debt so that he can focus on beating cancer.
