The fundraiser for Michael Ghilardi is scheduled for 3 p.m. Saturday at the Dwight House, 35366 N. Route 12 in Ingleside. There will be raffles, 50/50 drawings, food, music, bands, and some open jam time.

Money raised from the benefit will be used to pay for utilities, transportation and grocery costs.

There also is a bank account established. Donations may be sent to the Michael Ghilardi Cancer Benefit Fund, at the McHenry Savings Bank Richmond Branch, P.O. Box 143, Richmond, IL 60071.

Ghilardi needs a transplant, and he has been on medical leave from his job since November.
