Fundraiser Sunday for Jimmy Fund Walk
A fundraiser for Just Wings, a team of locals who will walk in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund event to raise money for cancer research, will take place at Junction Trattoria & Bistro in North Kingstown on Sunday, Aug. 18, from 4 to 8 p.m. This will be the eighth time the team participates in the walk. Team captain Vicki Schmidt, who is from Jamestown, is currently in treatment at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. To date, the team has raised more than $104,000.
Everyone who attends the fundraiser will automatically be entered into a raffle for a $50 gift card to Junction Trattoria. Members of Just Wings will act as servers during the event, both taking orders and serving them. If anyone is interested in joining Just Wings or donating to the team, visit Jim myFundWalk.org. The walk will take place on Sept. 8.
