Benefit for Ewing planned for May 10

A?benefit to raise funds to help offset the medical expenses for a Webster City woman battling cancer will be held May 10 at the Ed Prince Building on the Hamilton County Fairgrounds.

The benefit will begin at 5 p.m. with a free will donation dinner featuring a potato bar. A silent auction will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. and there will be music and dancing throughout the evening.

Donations may be sent to Jean Ewing Benefit, WCF?Financial Bank, 820 Second St., Webster City, IA?50595.
