Fundraiser set at Center Point church Saturday

Monday, March 23, 2009

CENTER POINT -- A fundraiser for David Phillip Day will take place Saturday, April 4, at the Center Point United Methodist Church Family Center.

David Phillip Day is the son of Michael and Kim Day.

Soon after birth, it was discovered that David had holes in his heart. When he tried to drink from a bottle, the doctors said it was like he was running a marathon, as it wore him out.

He either wasn't able to eat or he would drink so hard and fast that he would get sick.

David spent weeks in the hospital and when he came home, his family had to feed him through a tube inserted through his nose and down to his stomach.

When David was 7 months old, he finally was strong enough and weighed enough to have open heart surgery. In late January, David had his heart repaired and he is doing much better and now drinking from a bottle.

Due to medical bills, however, family and friends have planned "A Day for the Day Family," to take place at the church.

All proceeds from the event will be given to Michael and Kim Day.

From 9 a.m.-5 p.m., scrapbooking will take place. Registration for the scrapbook crop will be $20 and includes a table, use of tools, snacks, lunch and a goodie bag. For more information, call Scraplooks at 446-5683.

In addition, sandwiches, baked goods, vendor booths and a silent auction will take place from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Approximately 10 vendors will be available and more than 30 silent auction items, including Dinner for two at Pizza Hut, Brazil, Lia Sophia Jewelry, Indiana State University items, a Kentucky Ham, Kerasotes Theatre tickets, Creative Memories items, Scraplook items, Candles, a Barn Star, St. Mary-of-the-Woods College canvas bag, the Open Door keyhole necklace, Fry Photography Free Photo session, Tupperware and more.
