Ridgeway fire hall hosting benefit today for jail sergeant with lung cancer
RIDGEWAY — A big crowd is expected today for a benefit at the Ridgeway Fire Hall for Terry Weaver, who has a 30-year career in law enforcement.
Weaver, a sergeant at the Orleans County Jail, is fighting stage 4 lung cancer. He also has had two brain surgeries to remove a mass.
“My brother is the quiet one,” said his sister Kim Lockwood. “He worked his butt off and was always there to lend a hand to others when needed.”
The community has contributed 200 baskets to be raffled off today during the benefit. Lockwood said 360 spaghetti dinner tickets have already been sold for the dinner from 2 to 7 p.m.
In addition to the basket raffles, there are 11 “big ticket” items and a 50/50 raffle, she said.
The event will include performances by the bands Dave Viterna Group, The Who Dats and Eagle Creek.
Lockwood urged people to stop by. There is no cover charge.
“We want people to come in and love my brother up,” she said.
The firehall is located at 11392 Ridge Rd.
