Craig resident raising money to assist ill daughter
Craig resident Marge McKenzie spent weeks planning, followed by 14 hours of cooking, a weekend benefit dinner. There was a twist, however. She was the beneficiary of the fundraiser. From 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday at St. Michael’s Kitchen, McKenzie and a small group of volunteers served homemade Mexican meals for $8 per person. McKenzie, a 30-year resident of Craig, said proceeds from the fundraiser will allow her to travel to New York and assist her ailing daughter and other family members.
