Benefit for Gayle Strutz

October 15, 2009 - Terri Castelaz
As many of you read in The Daily News last week, Gayle (Duff) Strutz, who is a co-worker of mine at the News, was recently diagnosed with Stage 3 Adencarinoma (a form of lung cancer).

Receiving the cancer diagnosis is scary enough without having to deal with the financial stress caused by the illness. Family, friends and coworkers want to help by raising money to ease the burden of these medical expenses.

A fund-raiser benefit has been set for Saturday, Nov. 21, at the Uren-Cooper-Johnson American Legion Post 50 in Iron Mountain from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. A spaghetti dinner will be served for a $5 donation per person. The local band, Kamakazi Blitz will be performing throughout the day. Drawings, 50/50s and a silent auction is also in the works.

Organizers are asking area businesses and the public for their help to make this benefit a success. They are in need of items that can be used for door prizes, as well as for the silent auction. Anyone wishing to donate items is asked to call Jennifer Flynn at 779-5402. She can also arrange for pick up of the donated prizes.

Persons who wish to make a monetary donation can do so in Gayle's name at any of the local branches of The First National Bank of Iron Mountain-Kingsford.

Persons who have any questions about the benefit can contact Flynn at 779-5402 or by e-mail at

I wish Gayle a speedy recovering and hope to see her smiling face back in the office soon.
