Chelsea ice skating fundraiser set for Pinckney girl burned in bonfire
Proceeds from an open skate, silent auction and dinner will benefit the family and are planned for Saturday at the Arctic Coliseum at 501 Coliseum Drive, in Chelsea:
- 1 p.m.: Silent auction
- 2-4 p.m.: Open skate
- 1-5 p.m.: Dinner served
To participate in the open skate or be served dinner, the cost is $10 each, the Daily Press & Argus reported.
Sarah is the daughter of Chelsea Chiefs Blue team Coach Ken Grundy of Chelsea and Sandy Lavey-Grundy of Pinckney.
Doctors anticipated Sarah would need to stay in the trauma burn unit at the University of Michigan's University Hospital for several months.
A 2012 graduate of Pinckney High School, Sarah was preparing to enroll in the nursing program at Washtenaw Community College.
The Saturday fundraiser is in addition to at least three other events in April and May that worked to raise money for Sarah's medical bills.
