Fundraising dinner to support staffer’s family

Friends and colleagues of Mike Kisch, first vice-president of CAW Local 2458, have organized a pasta dinner to help his family defray expenses related to treatment for his 11-year-old son’s brain cancer.

Hope and Hugs for Holden will offer pasta, salad, rolls and butter, tea and coffee—as well as prize raffles and a cash bar—at Average Joe’s sports bar, from 5 to 8 p.m. on Friday, April 12.

“We certainly hope people will support this fundraiser for Mike and his family,” says Brenda King, chair of the campus bargaining unit. “We know that any support from the UWindsor community will be appreciated at this very difficult time.”

Tickets are $20 per adult, $10 per child 12 and under. Average Joe’s is located at 1286 Lauzon Road.

King is also accepting donations of door prizes or baked goods. Call her for details at 519-253-3000, ext. 2458.
