Parker's Army Benefit



Parker Chase, the 12-year-old daughter of Leah and Brian Chase, of Center, was recently placed on the liver transplant list. Parker was diagnosed with Progressive Familial Intrahepatic Cholestasis Type II when she was 9 months old.


Friends and Family of Parker’s ARMY are hosting a fundraiser to help the family with expenses they will incur before, during and after Parker’s transplant. 


A BBQ benefit luncheon is set for Aug. 16 at Raymond Motor Company in Center. Lunches will include a chicken leg quarter, prepared by Nutt 5 BBQ, baked beans, potato salad and dessert for $10.

Orders will be available for pickup between 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.


Raffle tickets are available for $25 each or five (5) for $100. Prices include Jet Stream 230 Portacool; Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM, or $1,300.00 cash; and a Diamondback Elite 6.5 Grendel Flat Back Earth w/Bipod.

Parker’s ARMY t-shirts will also be available for purchase the day of the benefit. Adult size small through XL are available for $20 each.
