Lisa (Wilkinson) Silvia, a lifetime Aquidneck Island resident was diagnosed in February 2010 with Stage IV Metastatic Breast Cancer. Due to her illness, Lisa, who had been employed over twelve years at Navy Gateway Inns & Suites in Newport RI, was forced to leave her position in October 2010. To help defray the mounting medical bills and expenses, her family and friends will be holding a spaghetti dinner and silent auction benefit on Saturday, October 27, 2012 from 5:00-10:00 PM. The Pier Restaurant located at Howard Wharf in Newport RI, has graciously offered to host and donate their venue and dinner. Tickets are $25.00 each. Individuals or businesses that feel they have a product or service that could be auctioned off are encouraged to contact Leslie Flynn or Stacy Silvia at the numbers below so arrangements can be made to pick them up.
If you cannot attend the fundraiser, donations may be made to: Hope For Tata’s, c/o of Newport Fed, 165 East Main Road, Middletown, RI 02842.
Thank you all for any consideration available. If you have any questions about the fundraising efforts, please contact Stacy Silvia at 401-418-2012 or Leslie (Wilkinson) Flynn at 401-864-8483.
