Fundraiser for waitress planned

Tonya Richardson is a long-time waitress at the Hamburger Inn in Delaware. Recently she has experienced major medical issues and has been unable to work for several months. In addition, her daughter recently died in an automobile accident near Delaware. Tonya had been helping care for the grand-daughter before the accident.

To help pay some of Richardson’s medical expenses, a fundraiser is planned at Scoreboard Pub and Grill, 6 Troy Road, Delaware. Two local bands will provide entertainment. 3 Of A Kind will play from 7 to 8:30 p.m. and In a Jam will play from 9 to 10:30 p.m. In addition, a silent auction will be held of local merchandise.

Donations will be accepted at either Hamburger Inn, 16 N. Sandusky Street, or at Scoreboard. Checks can be made out to Tonya Richardson.

If you have questions or would like to donate an item for the silent auction, contact Bob Claymier at bobrustystrings@yahoo.com or 740-816-9627.
