Elbert County Rallies to Support One of Its Own

August 13, 2012

This past Wednesday there was a prayer rally at the Granite Bowl for one of our locals, Sydney Vickery. She has been having seizures caused by an infection that doctors still haven’t been able to diagnose.

A large crowd gathered on Wednesday night at the Granite Bowl for the prayer rally, during the prayer rally music was provided; members of the community led those who attended in prayer, and they had parents and cheerleaders helping with T-Shirt orders.

This past weekend there were fundraisers that took place for Sydney. On Saturday two fundraisers were held; ‘Shoots for Sydney’, and a bake sale during picture day at the Granite Bowl.

The deadline for ordering T-Shirts was Sunday ordering will resume as soon as the first order comes in. The next fundraising event that is scheduled is a hamburger sack lunch on August 24th. It will be held in the Granite City Hardware parking lot, Cost is $6.

All proceeds will go to benefit Sydney and her family.
