Benefit Dinner Information

The Benefit Dinner & Concert for Aloshua will be held in the main cafeteria at the Bald Knob Schools. Admission is $5.00, kids 5 and under are free.

Dinner will be served beginning at 5pm. The menu includes: spaghetti and meatballs, cheese ravioli, garlic bread, dinner salad, fried chicken, potatoe salad, macaroni salad, pasta salad, baked beans, corn, green beans, chicken jambalaya, sausage jambalaya, pizza (pepperoni, cheese, sausage), as well as hot dogs & bologna sandwiches for the kids (or adults!) who prefer those items.

Desserts include: a variety of cakes, pies, cookies, brownies, & banana pudding, as well as items donated by members of the community.

Broken Chains will perform after dinner, followed by Hunter West.

Drop-off donations for the Ronald McDonald House, Make-a-Wish Foundation, and the March of Dimes will run for the duration of the evening, and information on each organization may be found at the Community Involvement table all evening.

Aloshua will be attending for those who would like to meet him, however, his family asks that you do not request to meet him if you have been or are currently ill. They have also requested that you use hand sanitizer and/or thoroughly wash your hands prior to meeting him, and that you don't feed him. This is not to be picky, but is for his safety and health. He is immunocompromised and gets sick very easily as a result. A minor cold for you could potentially result in Aloshua spending weeks in Intensive Care. He also has severe food allergies, as well as special food needs that must be closely monitored.

You will have the option of writing him a note for his mom to read to him after the event if you are unable to meet him.  :)

Door prizes will be raffled off throughout the evening. Items include gift certificates and items donated by the following: Which Wich?, Froyo, Barbara Louise Salon, Hour of Power Fitness, Beautiful Noise, Thrills on Wheels, Renae Cote, Lily Rae, & Clark's Drug Store, as well as candy bags and activity books for children, gift certificates to JC Penny's, Burger King, Little Ceasars, and a stylish clutch full of costume jewelry. Bald Knob native and Team Losh member Fallon Glenn, writing as A.K. Morgen, will also donate an ebook copy (for Kindle or Nook) of her debut young adult novel, Fade, upon release from Noble Young Adult in April of this year.

Additional raffle tickets will be available for purchase. They are $5.00 per ticket and will be at the admission table.

You can call Fallon at 501-348-0904 if you require any additional information.

We look forward to seeing you there!!
