Friends, family, neighbors and the community came out last Sunday, November 8 to help support 13-year old Pelham Bay resident, Katrina Sonnick, who is battling Juvenile Nephronophthisis, and her living donor father, Steven, in a fun, family-friendly fundraiser held at the Samuel H. Young American Legion Post 620. This event featured face painting, balloon twisting, arts and crafts projects for Thanksgiving and Christmas, bean bag toss games, music, refreshments, a bouncy castle courtesy of Frank Bee’s, a bake sale, children’s book sales and raffles prizes. All funds raised will be used to offset travel expenses and the mandatory lifelong anti-rejection medications Sonnick will require for her treatment.
