BETHALTO — Cornerstone Assembly of God Church will hold a fundraiser for a special church family Sunday, Sept. 20, at the church, 196 S. Moreland.
Nathaniel Thayer, son of Francis and Angie Thayer, was born with multiple disabilities and will be in a wheelchair his entire life.
His parents have been in ministry their whole lives.
The family is in urgent need of a van equipped with handicapped features that will help getting Nathaniel in and out of the vehicle. Family members now lift him out of the wheelchair, put him in the van and then lift the heavy wheelchair and put it in the back of the van.
The fundraiser includes a spaghetti dinner, a silent auction, a pie sale and table centerpieces that will be for sale.
Serving will begin at 12:15 pm. Dinner includes spaghetti, salad, bread and dessert. Tickets are $7 for adults, $3 for children ages 6-12 and children younger than 6 are free.
All proceeds will go to the Thayer family.
For information or to purchase tickets, call (618) 377-9794 or (618) 377-5489, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
