November HOW Dinner

This month’s Helping One Woman dinner will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 28 at The Hitching Post, 42592 Highway 49, with the proceeds going to Marie Elizabeth Wynn.

Wynn has lived in the mountain community since 1985 and worked in health care until she was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in 2017.

Her condition requires stem cell replacement at Stanford Hospital, a procedure which she will begin on Nov. 26. Wynn is not working and the medical costs have taken a large financial toll.

The HOW dinner has been organized to help Wynn during these trying times.

The dinner begins at 6 p.m. and will feature silent auctions and prize drawings, with all proceeds going to Wynn at the end of the night.
