Here's your chance to help out a local family that lost their six month old daughter, Eleanor Mae; their house, cars and almost everything they owned in an accidental fire last month.
Mention the Avery family and anything you spend from 5 to 8 p.m. April 16th at the Chick-Fil-A on Rt 17 will go to them. This Saturday from 5:30-7:30 p.m., they get the admissions paid at Cavalier Family Skating Center. May 4th Chili's and Margaret Brent Elementary School PTO will team up to hold a fundraiser. All three Chili's restaurants in the Fredericksburg area will donate 20 percent of food and drink sales to the family's relief fund. More details will come later.
May 17 - Community Yard Sale at Cardinal Forest subdivision pool house. More details will follow on this sale. To donate items to the sale, check out the family relief fund's Facebook site. The Avery's older kids went to Margaret Brent Elementary School, which is offering some other ways to help the family. The school is collecting change during this week's book sale, to buy some books for the kids, who lost all of theirs in the fire.
If you can't get to a fundraiser, but still want to help the family, you can mail donations to the: Avery Family Fire Relief; c/o Wells Fargo, Celebrate Virginia Branch on Banks Ford Pkwy in Fredericksburg.
