This Saturday at St Francis High School in Traverse City a benefit dinner and silent auction will be held to help raise money for the Ava Warriors Foundation named after a young girl who recently lost her battle with cancer.

Ava died very recently, and the benefit was originally organized to help raise funds for medical expenses – but now it will focus on raising money for a foundation named in her honor.

The benefit is scheduled from 2-8. Food is 5 dollars a plate, plus a bake sale, 50/50 raffle and silent auction.
