The Local Plate Thursday Fundraiser!

July 28 - July 31

The new Cranbrook food truck, The Local Plate, beside Kootenay Kwik Print, is holding a fundraiser Thursday night (July 30) beginning at 4pm for a local family battling cancer.

From Jody:  This Thursday night, we’ll be serving our meatball sub and beer and for every meatball sub sold the local Plate is donating $5 to Olivia Potorti and her family.
On October 22, 2019 Olivia was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. A week later we discovered she is Philadelphia Chromosome Positive.  This is a very rare (maybe 1-2 other children in Canada have this currently) chromosomal abnormality that is present in her Leukemic cells, and driving the way they grow.  Their family has been travelling back and forth to Calgary ever since, with many long hospital stays and time away from each other. Olivia has been battling very intense chemotherapy, and she continues to show incredible strength through all the challenges that are thrown at her. She is a little warrior!!
Get your long weekend started early – join us in supporting a local family.
