Benefit to be held Saturday for NT girl who lost mom: ‘Community support has been overwhelming’

The North Tonawanda community is coming together this Saturday for Starleana Breisch, a 10-year-old girl who lost her mom in a tragic accident last month. Keri Solinski, organizer of the benefit, says the support has been incredible and she looks forward to seeing everyone.

“Baskets are overflowing at the church, there’s more than 150, and community attendance is supposed to be 237 as of now,” she said.

Big ticket items include a 50 inch TV, bikes tours, day tours, half a carat diamond earrings, gift certificates for kid’s bday parties from Oogie Games, and more than 100 gift cards. Characters will also be coming for kids and two food trucks will be on site.

The event will be held 4 p.m. Saturday at Gratwick Fireside Pub. All proceeds will go to Starleana and her family.
