Midway Christian Church is hosting a street party from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Sunday for the Campbell/Spicer family on Church and East Bruen streets, next to the church.
"Cynthia, the mom, recently had emergency heart surgery without health insurance," said the Rev. Heather McColl, pastor of the church, where the family is active. "They have five kids that range in age from high school to elementary school. Joe Campbell, the father, is a part of Midway’s volunteer fire department."
Food options will include cotton candy from the Midway Woman’s Club, sno-cones, kettle corn, hot dogs and baked goods. A silent auction will also help raise money. Live music will be provided by Blake Jones, Willa Michel and the mayor. Vandegrift wrote in this week's Woodford Sun, "What a wonderful example of a community coming together to help one of their own in a time of need."
