Fundraiser to be held

Sarah Ebeling | Managing Editor

On Saturday, Feb. 15 an all day fundraising event is being planned in Monroe for Dave (Gar) Kleinsasser. 

Kleinsasser, who has lived in Monroe his entire life, started treatments for liver cancer about 14 months ago. Although currently not taking treatments, Kleinsasser has undergone radiation and chemotherapy and goes back to see his oncologist later this week. 

In an effort to help raise money to offset costs, family and friends have gathered to put together a fundraiser for him. 

The event will run from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. at the Monroe City Hall and the Monroe Bar and will have a host of activities for everyone. 

A dart tournament will get underway at 9 a.m. in the Monroe City Hall garage and Zzen Abate will be serving lunch in the Community Building beginning at 11 a.m. Calvary Reformed Church will be hosting a bake sale starting at 9 a.m. also in the Community Building and the First Church will have bingo with prizes for kids starting at 2 p.m. in the same spot. 

Also on the agenda is a silent auction that will begin at 9 a.m. with winners being announced at 8 p.m. 

At 7 p.m. the Bullet Proof Band will take to the stage at the Monroe Bar. 

To register for the dart tournament or to give a donation to the silent auction, call Ann Beil at 605.297.4749 or 605.212.9558 or stop by the Monroe Bar. 

Kleinsasser’s daughter, Teresa Johnson said that they are very grateful to everyone who has helped with anything, from making food to donations to buying shirts.
“(It) feels really good to be surrounded by people who care about him,” said Johnson.
