On January 1st, 2014 there was a very serious car accident on Mountain Highway. Due to the number of people involved, Graham Fire & Rescue, South Pierce Fire & Rescue, and Central Pierce Fire & Rescue all responded to this call. The accident left a family with both parents in wheelchairs for a few months while they recover from their injuries and surgeries, but left their daughter, 7-year-old McKenzie Harris, hospitalized as a quadriplegic. She is still in the hospital and her family hopes to have her home in the next month.
A spaghetti dinner and silent auction is being held at the Union Hall to help support the family with some of the medical costs they are having and to provide an opportunity for all of the responders that were on scene to be present to meet the family.
The fundraiser will be located at the Union Hall, 427 N Meridian, Puyallup, WA 98371, on March 15th. The dinner will be $10 per plate. You are invited to attend and your presence will go toward helping out a local family in need of the support of the community.
Tickets can be purchased at the door or online at www.tinyurl.com/stationhousedinner.
Donations for the family may also be made at Key Bank under "Harris Family", or online at Harris Family Fundraiser.
