Description

Fundraiser for the Hockenberry family Join us at the fire hall for a benefit meal, some fellowship, and to support a good cause!! See below for the menu. Kade Hockenberry\'s story started on May 27, 2022. Five hours after being born, he started having seizures and was flown to a level 4 NICU. Diagnostic treatments began searching for the cause of these seizures. After extensive testing and a host of medications that were not helping, Kade was diagnosed with Early Infantile Epileptic Encephalopathy (IEEE) due to a very rare genetic condition that occurs in 1 in 100,000 individuals worldwide. While still in the hospital at the time this event was created - it is very hopeful he will be coming home soon!!! This fundraiser is to help the Hockenberry family with the unexpected expenses of travel to the hospital, missed wages, setup needed at home for Kade\'s care, etc. The cost is $12 per meal: Roast Beef Mashed potatoes Stuffing Gravy Vegetable Dessert Drinks Eat is available from 11-1 pm - take-outs are also available! Please call Connie at 717-816-5917 or Karen at 717-877-7082 to let us know how many are coming. No time reservations have taken but a head count for food preparation is needed. If you aren\'t able to attend and would like to help support the family, donations will also be accepted. Please send checks to the Metal Township Fire & Ambulance Co (MTF&A) and put \"Hockenberry donation\" on the subject line.
