Numerous friends, family members and even total strangers have joined together to help Kiera Sutton, a Burien native, “kick cancer’s ass” at a fundraiser dinner/auction this coming Sunday, Sept. 25th (full event details here).
Kiera is fighting thyroid cancer, and friends and family are rallying to help pay her medical bills/living expenses while she works through this challenging time. The stated goal on a fundraiser website is $40,000, and as of Monday, Sept. 19th, $3,100 has been raised.
The fundraiser will take place from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. this Sunday, Sept. 25th at ‘A Terrible Beauty’ Irish pub, located at 201 Williams Ave South in Renton. Tickets will be sold at the door for $20 per person, which includes a Spaghetti Dinner with salad, French bread, a non-alcoholic beverage, and a raffle ticket that will be put into a drawing for a prize. For an additional $5 guests will also receive a rubber cause bracelet designed by Kiera.
