Area businesses have contributed greatly for a cancer benefit this Friday evening for a Hatfield native diagnosed with cancer for the second time in 11 years.
However, more raffle items and donations are still being accepted for the event.
The benefit seeks to help cover the medical costs for Hatfield native and 1998 North Penn High School graduate Jason Heffner. Heffner, an amateur filmmaker who currently resides in the Juniata section of Philadelphia, is battling cancer without medical insurance.
More than $1,200 has been raised so far via an online donation page. Donations can also be made online at https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/fNU95
More information on the event can be found at its public Facebook page, including who to contact for donations and raffle items.
The beef and beer benefit is $25 a person — that gets you food buffet and open bar for draft Pabst and Yuengling Lager. Wine and mixed drinks will be cash bar.
The event runs 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Nov. 30 in the upstairs ballroom of Third and Walnut Bar and Lounge in Lansdale.
There will be a 50/50 drawing and a raffle with gift baskets.
