Dinner will aid cancer research

A chicken noodle dinner in memory of a young Hope boy, Chase Galbraith, is planned from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Feb. 4 to raise money for Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health, Indianapolis.

This year’s Chillin’ for Chase’s Comrades Annual Chicken Noodle Dinner is planned at Hope Moravian Church, 202 Main St. Proceeds will be used to buy snacks for children on the hospital’s hematology/oncology floor.

Chase, pictured above, died Dec. 21, 2013, from acute myeloid leukemia. Family members and friends are raising money for cancer research to development of a cure.

The boy received care at Riley after he was diagnosed with leukemia on Christmas Eve 2012. His funeral was on what would have been his third birthday, Dec. 27, 2013.

Free-will donations for this year’s event will be accepted at the dinner, and a dessert auction is planned.

Anyone willing to donate for the dinner or dessert auction or would like to help is asked to call Cortney Galbraith at 812-546-4064 or 812-371-0962. The family is also encouraging residents to wear orange for leukemia awareness.
