River of Life yard sale today will benefit Donovan Doroski
River of Life Assembly of God hosts a yard sale and bake sale fundraiser this weekend for Donovan Doroski, 21, of Odell, in his ongoing battle with cancer.
Doroski, a 2011 Hood River Valley High School graduate, was diagnosed in 2011 with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The sale will help Donovan and his family with ongoing medical costs.
With the watch-phrase “Donovan, you are not in this fight alone,” the congregation has gathered and created a wide selection of household items and baked goods — “something for everyone.”
Hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 23, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct. 24.
The church is at 979 Tucker Road, behind Murray’s Furniture and The Next Door, Inc.
