YAKIMA, Washington — -A fund raiser to benefit Allison Hargraves, infant daughter of Northwest late model Erick Hargraves and Drez Iversen, is set for Saturday, December 1 at the Wapato Community Center.
The Community Center is located just south of Yakima in Wapato, Wash. Kicking off at Noon with a chili feed, silent and live auctions and much more throughout the afternoon-the event will be the second of many fund raisers to help baby Allie's family defer costs of her care.
Items up for auction include tickets to some of the Northwest's premier late model events, racing memorabilia and vinyl decal packages for race cars. Coffee, food and other special offers will also be up for bid.
All proceeds will go towards costs incurred as Allie is hospitalized in Portland's Emmanuel Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
Born Oct. 27 in Yakima, Allie arrived to her parents several weeks premature. After a five-day stay at Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital, Allie was airlifted to Portland for specialized care. Her parents are staying in the Ronald McDonald House, but, have not been working while keeping a daily vigil at their daughter's side. Baby Allie is listed in critical condition battling an enlarged heart, spleen, liver as well as lung capacity issues.
A non-profit agency, Yakima Free Cakes for Kids, has assisted in establishing a fund at Yakima Federal Savings and Loan located at 118 E Yakima Ave. All donations are tax deductible and account specific information can be obtained by calling 800-331-3225.
