Benefit helped

To the Journal editor:

A benefit was recently held for Teresa (LaJoie) Piziali who has breast cancer. Thanks to our communities it was a huge success.

We want to thank all the Negaunee, Ishpeming and Marquette businesses and individuals who donated items for the silent auction and the raffles, all who worked the benefit, donated food, gave monetary donations, cards, prayers and hugs.

All the people that sold advanced tickets and distributed fliers, and all who attended the benefit, words cannot express what your love and support has meant to our families in this stressful time.

A special thank you to Pasqualis for the use of their place of business to hold the benefit and a special thank you to Chad and Stephanie Hintsala for the use of their home to organize everything and to store all the donated items.

May God bless all of you.
