Fundraiser for Coweta boy at Poplar Rd. Elementary May 17

A fundraiser is being held on May 17 for Poplar Road Elementary School 5th grader, Mack Ballard, and his family. Mack has leukemia and will be undergoing a bone marrow transplant this month. 

On May 17 from 5:30 - 8 p.m., Poplar Road Elementary School in Coweta County will be hosting a spaghetti dinner and marketplace to raise money for the family. Tickets for the spaghetti dinner are $5 each or $20 for a family of four or more.  

A marketplace will be set up during the spaghetti dinner for vendors to sell their products that include jewelry, Thirty-One products, Rodan + Fields Skincare, speciality oils and vinegar, and much more. Please join us for food, shopping, raffles, fun, and the knowledge that you are helping a very deserving family. To reserve a vendor booth or to donate products to our raffle, please contact Michelle Goembel at 770-599-8547 or goembel5@att.net.
