Dubbing the fundraising event for Michelle Conrady-Brown "Elkhart is
Fired up," the owners intend to offer a day of fun, food and
assistance to Michelle and her family. The Hudsons have owned the
restaurant and bar for two years, but Dana Hudson is a lifelong
resident of Elkhart. The couple decided to become involved in the
continuing efforts to help Michelle and her family with the
expensive costs relating to her treatment against ALS.
The hours for the bonfire-fundraiser are 2-6 p.m. at the business
in downtown Elkhart. Volunteers are putting together quite an array
of events to make this a fun day. Hot dogs, baked beans and chips
will be the special menu. Volunteers from the Needs and Goals
organization will put on a bake sale and donate all of the proceeds
to ALS Worldwide for Michelle Brown. Special guest bartenders will
be on hand to serve up the drinks. The Elkhart Fire Department will
bring in a fire truck for all of the younger kids to see and
Donations from the event will all be put toward the expenses
Michelle will incur as she makes trips to Mexico. Currently Mexico
is the only place doing a special type of stem cell research for ALS.
The Hudsons encourage everyone to come out, bring a smile and a
prayer of encouragement to let Michelle and her family know what a
community of support we can be.
