THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Bob Schwartz Benefit At Equity On Aug. 2
Issue Date: July 17, 2014
A benefit for Bob Schwartz will be held Saturday, Aug. 2 from 3 p.m. to midnight at Equity Hall, Hwy. 64, Pound.
Earlier this year Schwartz was diagnosed with stage IV metastatic Melanoma. Since that time he has had surgeries to remove tumors from his brain and melanoma from his skin, as well as other procedures, with continuing surveillance and treatments necessary.
Schwartz spent many years as a milk truck driver, worked on area farms and most recently drove truck locally. Since his diagnosis, it has been determined he will not be able to return to the jobs he loved so much. Also at that time he lost his health insurance, leaving him with no financial means of support for his much needed medical care and medications.
A life-long Porterfield resident, he was raised on the family farm, then started a family of his own just a few doors down. His daughter, Ashley Scriven, is expecting his first grandchild, and son, Spencer Schwartz, a 2014 Crivitz High School graduate, will soon head off to college.
Tickets will be sold at the door with food and music provided. There will be bucket, paddle and meat raffles and a silent auction.
