Inn Between to Host Benefit for Local Boy
A benefit to raise money for a handicap accessible van for Patrick Kelly, a five-year-old boy who is suffering from the debilitating Myotubular X-Linked, will be held at Buckley's Inn Between Restaurant in Hampton Bays, Sunday, January 14. There will be a Chinese auction from 6 to 8 p.m., and from 8 to 12, there will be music by Bangers and Mash with free hor d'oeurves and drink specials for a $10 donation.
Kelly's disorder is in the family of dystrophies. He is confined to a wheelchair and needs the support of a respirator and feeding tube. While he's doing better, his parents are unable to afford a special vehicle necessary to transport their son.
Donations can be mailed to the Hampton Bays Mother's Association, 177B Springville Road, Hampton Bays, NY 11946. Make checks payable to the "Patrick Kelly Fund."
