A benefit is planned this weekend for a local man suffering from cancer.
For the past three years, 46-year old Jason Gabriel, a 1989 graduate of Rice Lake, has been battling a rare form of colon cancer and has undergone several abdominal surgeries.
Jason now faces another round of chemotherapy which is expected to last through the end of this year.
On Saturday afternoon, the public is invited to join Jason’s friends and family for a fundraiser at the Rice Lake Hockey Arena. Saturday’s event will include a silent auction, raffles and boards, along with food, beer and soft drinks.
The benefit for Jason Gabriel will run from noon to 4pm Saturday at the Rice Lake Hockey Arena.
