Benefit scheduled for Brenda Rueckert

Family and friends of Brenda Rueckert are hosting a benefit on September 14 for the Milaca School District paraprofessional who is battling cancer.

The benefit will be a old bat softball tournament and will be held at the Gilman ball park in Gilman.  The tournament begins at 8 a.m. Call Jamey Rueckert at 320-267-3569 or Cole Schyma at 320-248-2406 for more information.

There will also be a bean bag tournament throughout the day, with action starting at 10 a.m. There will be a raffle drawing at 5 p.m.

Rueckert was diagnosed with bile duct cancer this summer.  She had surgery at Mayo Clinic August 23 to hopefully remove the tumor and all of the cancer.

The benefit is to help defray the medical costs and support Brenda while she is unable to work.
