Lake Wales Moose Lodge 2391 will be hosting a fundraiser Sunday, Aug. 25 to benefit 12-year-old Ambrey Batson, who is battling a rare form of bone cancer.

Ambrey is a 7th grader at Bok Academy North, where her mother Shelley is an assistant principal.

The benefit will start at 2 p.m. with activities, auction, raffle, 50-50 drawing and more. A dinner with pulled pork, baked beans and cole slaw starts at 5 p.m. for a requested $10 donation. The Moose Lodge is located at 3601 SR 60 E in Lake Wales.

Organizers are seeking auction and raffle donations, which can be dropped off on or before Aug. 24. Volunteer Joe Settle said community businesses have been generous in their donations and the group hopes to raise at least $5,000 to support Ambrey and her family. For more information or to donate, contact Settle at 863-528-8514.
