Benefit events set for Lily Johnson

Two benefit events are coming up this week for Lily Johnson, a Boone Central eighth grader who recently underwent liver transplant surgery.

Boone Central Middle School students will be sponsoring a car wash on Friday, March 30, from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Boone Central High School bus parking lot. Free will donations will be taken, and proceeds will be used to help defray medical costs for Lily.

On Saturday, March 31, a benefit garage/bake sale will be held from 8 a.m. to 12 noon at the Casey Building on the Boone County Fairgrounds. Proceeds from this event, along with free will donations given there, will also help with Lily’s medical costs.
