Williamston Eagles to host fundraiser for Epilepsy Foundation on Aug. 25 
    The Williamston Eagles Club will host a fundraiser for the Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan on Saturday, August 25th. We would like to extend an invitation to the community and everyone in surrounding towns to come down and support this informative and worthy event. 
    Epilepsy is the fourth largest neurological disease in the US and will affect one out of 26 people during their lives. Representatives will be on hand speaking on such subjects as; the cause of epilepsy, treatments, how to recognize a seizure, and what to do and what not to do during a seizure. You will also have the opportunity to schedule training at your own facility providing valuable, lifesaving information for teachers, caregivers, etc.
    We will be serving a meal of stuffed pork loin or stuffed smothered chicken breast with all the fixin’s for just a $10 donation. Dinner begins at 5pm, followed by live music and dancing with Aces High Band at 7pm.There will be a large assortment of Chinese auction items and raffles during the course of the night.
    The money raised will be used to help fund Camp Discovery at North Star Reach. Camp Discovery allows children with epilepsy a chance to camp in a safe, fun and life-changing environment. The camp is a member of Serious Fun Children's Network, founded by Paul Newman. Please join us in raising funds so children in need may experience Camp Discovery. Epilepsy Foundation returns 88% of all monies raised to the community and is accredited with the Better Business Bureau.
   The event is open to the public at 3pm. Cash bar is available. Call us any day after 3pm at 517-655-6510 for more information. The club is located at 835 High Street in Williamston along the banks of the Red Cedar River.
