A roast beef and chicken dinner fundraiser-- rain or shine -- to benefit Jerry "Frog" Drzal of New Milford July 12.

Festivities will run from 3 to 7 p.m. at the Conn Pavilion at Harrybrooke Park off Still River Drive.

Drzal, a third-generation farmer in the Merryall section of town, was recently diagnosed with stage four lung cancer that has metastasized to his stomach and liver.

Drzal also worked for Straub Plumbing for many years.

His fiancee, Kim, has been forced to take an indefinite leave of absence from her job to care for him and tend to the farm.

Tickets are $20, with proceeds to benefit medical expenses.

For more information or to make a donation, contact Carol Showalter at 860-354-7250.
