Benefit for Maddie Zelt (Fort Wayne, IN)

October 10, 2007

Filed under: People

There’s a benefit for Maddie Zelt, the 18-month old daughter of Chad & Kaia, who was born with a disease called Dejerine-Sottas, a form of Charcot-Marie-Tooth. This is a neuromuscular disorder that causes damage to the lining of the nerves. Maddie sees several therapists weekly, takes many trips to Riley Children’s Hospital, is on a feeding tube, and has numerous special needs. Funds raised will help defray the expenses not covered by insurance.
In addition to an all-you-can-eat fish and chicken dinner on Sunday, October 21st from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm, there will be a bake sale, a silent auction (which ends at 1:30), and a live auction (begins at 2:15). Location is St. Peter’s Lutheran School, 7810 E. State Street, at the corner of State and Maysville.
Another chance to help Maddie is by getting your hair cut at Great Clips in Georgetown North on October 14th from 5:00 – 7:00 or until the last hair cut is complete. All proceeds will be donated to Maddie’s fund.
