ALBION – Maison Albion will host a benefit on Nov. 13 benefitting Byron Neal and his family. Byron Neal is an 8-year-old boy who was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma in May 2022 and a Ganglioneuroma in his abdomen in August 2022. This event will help the Neal family pay for costs of their son’s treatment.

Byron is the son of Jeremy and Tina Neal. The Neal family operate Poverty Hill Farms, a dairy farm on West County House Road.

The benefit will take place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the historic Maison Albion ballroom and on the grounds at 13800 West County House Rd.

A Fall football food menu and drinks will be available from Blue Grove Coffee Truck, the Albion Masonic Lodge, and Royal Body Shop Outreach Ministries. A band, DJs and lawn games will be available for guests to enjoy. There will be a projector and a large screen to show the Bills game.

There is no admission fee, but guests will have an opportunity to take part in a basket auction including 150 baskets, and high-end items. There will also be tours of the historic mansion.

All of the proceeds raised from the event will go to the Neal family. Please RSVP and share on the Maison Albion Facebook Event page so we can have accurate guest count for food and refreshments.

“The Neal family are our dear neighbors and friends. We are honored to host a basket raffle to raise funds for this amazing family and for Byron’s treatment,” said Kerri Glover, owner of Maison Albion.

“I am so enthused to be able to help this family and this courageous boy,” said Jodi Anstey, friend of the family and host. “We are looking forward to a fun, fantastic event!”
