Say Rawr to Lorna's Cancer This Sunday at Hammerstone's

You may not think you know Lorna, but I bet you've come across her at some point during your Island adventures. I've always known Lorna to be friendly, awesome and far from ordinary. Lorna is a long-time bartender at Llywelyn's and lives in the neighborhood. She was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.

Like many of those in the food service industry, Lorna doesn't have health insurance. Aside from the devastating experience of having to undergo chemotherapy and other treatment, she will be doing it without that insurance net.

A campaign has been set up on GoFundMe to help with medical expenses and the like. In 25 days, it has raised $3,705 of its $10,000 goal from 43 people.

This Sunday a fundraiser will be held on the Hammerstone's patio from Noon to 8 pm. A $10 donation to the cause is being asked for by organizers. All money will go to Lorna's medical expenses. Live music will be going on throughout the event. Here is the music schedule

11:00-1:00 Brewbadours
1:30-2:30 Maggie Dailey 
3:00-5:00 Steve Reeb
5:30-8:00 Mr. Wells

A raffle as well as a Bra Decorating Contest and Fashion Show will also be held. You can find the details on the event's Facebook page
