Lyme disease fundraiser!

Whitney Corn, a Hillsborough native battling late-stage Lyme disease—which isn't covered by insurance—will hold a raffle and fundraiser on Saturday, July 9, at 4 p.m. at Schley Grange Hall. Money raised at the event will go toward funding Whitney's treatment as well as paying for various bills the family has had to put on hold to be able to pay medical fees.
To buy raffle tickets, make a donation or help in any way possible, call (919) 602-5555 for Kathy Corn, Whitney's mother. Raffle prizes include:

  •  First-place—a 55-inch Vizio LCD HD TV.

  •  Second-place—a photo sitting and 11-by-14 portrait donated by Kent Murray.

  •  Third-place—a full auto detail donated by Superior Auto Detail.

  • For more information on the Corn family's struggles, see the Wednesday, May 19, edition of the News of Orange or read it online. For further information about Whitney's ordeal and the politics of Lyme disease, see the Wednesday, July 6, edition of the News of Orange.
