A Bowling Green benefit to aid a local man who has been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer is being planned for June 29.
Stan Irvin, a longtime local contractor and carpenter, recently received the difficult news that he has the most serious stage of lung cancer, which has metastasized to the liver.
Irvin, 61, is well known in Wood County, having built many homes, along with decks, cabinets and other items for people living in the surrounding area over the past 40 years. He is a diehard Cincinnati Bengals fan as well as a NASCAR follower.
"Stan took ill right before Christmas and has been forced to take an indefinite leave of absence," explained close friend Kathy Henry. Expenses related to his medicines and doctor's appointments, as well as regular monthly bills, are piling up as Irvin has no medical insurance.
His formal diagnosis of cancer was made last month.
On Irvin's behalf, family and friends are organizing a benefit at the Eagles Lodge on North Main Street, Bowling Green. It will run from 1 until 7 p.m. on June 29, a Saturday.
The day will feature a Chinese auction, a silent auction, "spin to win" game, 50/50 raffles, and bake sales. An all-day schedule of live music will be furnished by bands, disc jockeys and karaoke.
There is a $5 requested donation at the door, which will include all food. The menu will consist of chicken sandwiches, sloppy joes, snacks, vegetable trays and cheese trays. Available beverages will include beer and soda pop, for which there is a separate donation.
For more information about the benefit, or to donate an item or gift certificate for the auction or gift baskets, contact benefit organizers Chuck and Geri Close, or Henry at 1-419-250-4800. Her home address is 315 Parkview Drive, No. 8, Bowling Green.
