Art Event At Butterfields Raises Money For Child Battling Leukemia

Participants with their finished pieces of art.

Butterfields Southern Café, KB Social Artworking and First Air A/C held a fundraiser Tuesday, Aug. 1 at Butterfields to benefit the family of Jacqueline King, a local child who was diagnosed with t-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia in May.

Friends, family and the community gathered to raise $1,266 to help the King family.

The family’s world was turned upside down with the May 31 diagnosis and has received an outpouring of love, encouragement and support from friends, family, neighbors and those they didn’t know previously.

The King family thanks Rhonda and Dusty Smith of First Air A/C for putting together the event, Mike Foley and the staff and management of Butterfields’s Southern Cafe and Kerry Barnes of KB Social Artworking for putting together the event that brought cheer and support to the family.
