Fundraiser for Chris Larsen this Saturday

This will be a night of dancing and fun. We will have appetizers, (Cash bar) a silent auction, a raffle and a 50/50 raffle! Tickets are $20.00 each to get in. I’m going to be making up the tickets soon and they will be available to buy through my siblings, mom and I. So keep this on your schedule!

A huge shout out to the Gloucester House for throwing this awesome event!

My family is raising money for my dad Chris Larsen. He had a quadruple bypass a few days after New Years Day. While in the hospital he was put on Heparin which is a blood thinner. At the time it wasn’t known that he was allergic to it. He started to show different symptoms including blood clots and swollen legs and feet. My dad was kept on it and continued to have pain in his legs. He suffered irreversible damage to his right leg which was recently amputated below the knee and a partial toe amputation on his left foot due to gangrene. Chris is a well known guy that greets everyone with a smile at Larsen’s Shoe Store. He is a Vietnam veteran and has lived a life of service to the country and the community. He has been a stubborn Fin his entire life and never asks anyone for anything, but now he knows he is in a battle in which he needs help. We are raising money to assist with unforeseen expenses such as home renovations, medical bills, rehabilitation, and equipment he may need to make this life altering experience a little easier.
