Sweet little Sydney Gill is smiling from ear to ear in her photo, so you’d never know that she can’t use her arm. Sydney suffers from shoulder dystocia (Erbs palsy), but friends of the family say she’s the strongest girl they know.
“She has a heart of gold,” said Lisa Cretacci, friend. “She keeps fighting and fighting.”
Since there is no cure for her condition yet, Cretacci says Sydney’s parents travel all over trying to find different treatment plans, therapies, and surgeries to help their daughter. The medical bills keep piling up, so a group of friends wanted to help. A psychic gallery fundraiser to benefit Sydney and her family will be held 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 27 at the Dom Polski club, 576 Oliver St., North Tonawanda.
Tickets are $20 for each reading and can be purchased at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3052066. Psychic mediums include international psychic Bernice Golden and empathic psychic Kristie London. Combo tickets for both readings can be purchased for $35. The benefit will also feature a basket raffle, 50/50 split, music, food, reiki healing, chair massages, angel card and psychometric readings. All proceeds will go to benefit the family.
“Come on out and enjoy this great event,” said Cretacci. “All are welcome.”
