Come join Team Gareth at Georgetown Ballroom in Seattle on May 24th from 5-8pm. We’ll be kicking off summer and raising funds for Gareth’s medical costs!
Chef Stew Navarre from Local 360 and Bell + Whete will be cooking up some scrumptious food and we will have beer provided by Rock Bottom Brewery Bellevue’s Brewmaster, Sara Luchi. There will also be items for raffle and auction.
Tickets are $35 and include food and a drink ticket (there will be a cash bar for additional drinks). You can purchase your tickets at BrownPaperTickets.com (credit card) or at the door (cash or check).
Gareth was diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma in May of 2013, a few months after his 28th birthday. What started out as a “one treatment of chemo and you should be good” experience has turned into a two year journey encompassing five different chemotherapies, one immunotherapy, one medical trial, two stem-cell transplants (one of which will be happening this summer), one bout of shingles and one stroke.
He has been lucky with bills for the most part. Swedish Charity Care and the Affordable Care Act/Medicaid have covered a lot of the finances; however he still has $61,000 in uncovered bills. With the treatments he has received over the last two years, he has not been able to work enough to pay down the bills and afford rent/gas/insurance/groceries. With the current and upcoming treatments it will be many months until he has the strength/ability to work full time again.
All proceeds will go towards Gareth’s medical costs. All ages are welcome.
