HICO (June 29, 2018)– Earlier this year Teresa Huffman Ausburger was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer. To help cover medical expenses her husband Kenneth Ausburger is holding a fundraiser at the Bluebonnet Country Club on July 8 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The benefit will include a live and silent auction of donated items and a raffle. Local businesses and residents have donated items such as guns, a free photography session, pies from the Koffee Kup, gift certificates and more.
Additionally, Rockin K&C BBQ and Catering are providing the barbecue for the fundraiser. Plates cost $10 apiece and will include a chopped barbecue sandwich, beans, chipps or a potato salad, dessert and tea or water. To go plates are also an option.
The Push N Luck Band will perform throughout the evening.
All proceeds will go to cover medical bills that are not covered by insurance. Teresa needed a port put in recently, and $1200 had to be paid up front.
“It’s a necessity because she needs these treatments and won’t have the money up front and won’t be able to get the procedure,” Kenneth said.
