Dinner and silent auction

Tuesday, October 18, 2005

Alex Hermstad, 12, was a healthy girl just six months ago. Doctors have told the family that she has developed a neuromuscular condition. Alex is losing control of her muscles and at the present time, the doctors have not been able to find a cure or a treatment to help. Her family is not giving up hope and is still searching for a cure. At this point, options for treatment require extensive travel and are very expensive. "Angels for Alex" are hosting a benefit dinner and silent auction to raise money to help find a cure and to assist with medical expenses. Help parents Jeff and Lori Hermstad, sister Jaci, and grandparents Dave and Jean Hadden help Alex. The spaghetti dinner and silent auction will be held Sunday, Oct. 23, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the BVU Forum. A freewill donations will be excepted. Donations may be dropped off at MetaBank or Central Bank, or mailed to:
