Fundraiser August 7 to help with cancer treatments

When a hard working lady suddenly finds herself facing a medical crisis that the system is not geared to deal with, what does a community do?  Clark Fork is demonstrating just how neighbor helping neighbor can make a difference and how you can help too.
Jonell Davisson is a well liked City Clerk of the City of Clark Fork.  She was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin’s disease, lymphoma, and leukemia;  all extremely virulent cancers.  She has no insurance, is not old enough for Medicare, and cannot get treatment through Medicaid because she does not meet all requirements of that program. 
The Clark Fork Methodist Women recognized the need and, joined by her friends  at the City of Clark Fork, they have organized a fundraiser for Jonell in the form of a Special Bingo Night at the Clark Fork Senior Center at 6:00pm on Saturday August 7.  A night of fun to help Jonell seemed appropriate to help this lady who has been an asset to the community for the last six years.
There will be 20 games called by Bill Harp, head of maintenance for Clark Fork.  Great prizes are being donated by friends and businesses in the community . At the break in the games snacks will be provided.  
The Methodist Ladies and her many friends in the city and community hope that  everyone in the area will come and enjoy a  fun evening while helping a deserving single mother of three and recent grandmother at a time of critical need.
