Bill Myers, of Lutz, has been diagnosed with stage four lung cancer — and the community has come together to try to help him.
A benefit has been planned for Nov. 23 from noon to 6 p.m., at Land O’ Lakes Heritage Park, 5401 Land O’ Lakes Blvd., in Land O’ Lakes.
There’s no admission charge for the event, which will feature musical performances, a variety of vendors and food vendors.
Several eateries will provide catered dishes that will be sold for voluntary donations.
Patrons, along with Bill, also can enjoy some cake, in recognition of Bill’s birthday – the previous day.
“He is a wonderful father and grandpa, and a good friend – to those lucky few – who get close enough to earn his trust and loyalty,” said Liz Myers, Bill’s wife.
There also will be T-shirts for sale and a silent auction.
Other highlights include a Zumba class and a bounce house, both being offered free of charge.
Paula O’ Neil, Pasco County’s former Circuit Court Clerk and Comptroller — who is a cancer survivor, will be the guest speaker for the fundraiser.
Santa Claus will be there, too, giving people a chance to have their photo taken with the jolly old fellow, for a voluntary donation.
Funds collected will go toward offsetting Bill’s medical expenses.
A GoFundMe page also eventually will be opened for contributions.
