COUNTY BRIEFING

Benefits planned for nurse

Employees at Salem Regional Medical Center are planning two fundraisers in August to help their co-worker, Amanda Price, a registered nurse at SRMC, who is expecting her second child and was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Due to treatments, she will be unable to work for an extended period of time. A basket raffle and 50/50 raffle will be held from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day Aug. 1-3 in the hospital cafeteria. Tickets are $1 each, $5 for six or $10 for an arm’s length of tickets. Then on Aug. 4, a spaghetti dinner benefit will be held from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Heartland Christian School. The cost is $8 for adults and $5 for children. Proceeds from these fundraisers will go directly to the Price family to help offset medical costs. For more information call Britney Kurtz at 330-502-2949 or Ronda Richards at 330-844-9960.
