A pasta dinner fundraiser will be held on Thursday, March 27, at the Romeo VFW Hall, 70455 McVicar Road, Romeo, as a benefit for Jestin "Jesse" Robinson.
Dinner begins at 5 p.m. and there will be a 50/50 raffle and prize baskets donated by local businesses.
Robinson, 30, is a lifelong Romeo resident who was diagnosed with the same cancer as Lance Armstrong. By the time his cancer was discovered, it had spread to his lungs and brain. This form of cancer is considered very treatable, but there is a long road of chemotherapy and radiation ahead. He will not be able to work and needs this time to receive his treatments and recover.
On Thursday, April 3, another fundraiser will be held at Hamlin Pub at 25 Mile and Van Dyke, where he has been employed for more than a year. Dinner will be $15, with a cash bar, door prizes, silent auction and 50/50 raffle.
All proceeds will go directly to his fight against cancer. Visit facebook.com/JessesFightAgainstCancer.
