Due to unforeseen public response, the fundraiser for the Huen Family has been moved from its previous location of Veterans Park to Celebration Park. Lead organizer, Gloria Phelps explains “The amount of responses we’ve had made us very concerned about the size of the original venue. Parking was going to be a nightmare. Fortunately, the City of Gardner was able to make Celebration Park available to us.”
The fundraiser will feature a silent auction, corn hole tournament and face painting. Food will also be available. All proceeds will go to the funeral funds for Jason and Julie Huen, two Gardner residents killed in a motorcycle accident when they struck a deer on July 13. They leave behind three children.
Phelps adds, “The main thing now is to get the word out of the location change. If everyone could help spread the word, like and share FaceBook posts, talk to friends and send out e-mails. I don’t want this change to reduce the number of people who show up to help this family.”
