BBQ Benefit for Tim Weigold is April 20

  Friends and family of Tim Weigold are planning a BBQ Benefit Event for the Arthur resident on Saturday, April 20.

  The benefit will be held at the Richville American Legion Hall Post #400, 9890 Sanilac Road (M-46), just west to Richville.

  On Monday, March 18, Weigold suffered an aortic dissection, was transported to St. Mary’s Hospital and then taken to the University of Michigan Hospital, Ann Arbor. On Sunday, April 14, Weigold underwent an emergency heart surgery.

  Weigold was a long-time truck driver with Star of the West Milling Company and over the past several years, has been employed by Countryside Transportation Service.

  Tim’s grown children, Sidnee, and Noah, have been with him through this arduous journey. Dinner will be served from 2-8pm, with take-outs available, a 50-50 raffle drawing, gun raffles, and a live auction starting at 5pm.

  Special t-shirts will also be for sale, with “Trucking for Tim” on the front side and “In It For the Long Haul” on the back, with Countryside’s logo. A semi-truck parade is also planned, to loop around the Legion Hall.

  Polka music will begin after 6pm with music by Detroit’s Tommy Schober & The Sounds of Sorgenbrecher. Weigold is a member of the Michigan Polka Militia.

  All proceeds will benefit Weigold to cover medical expenses. Cash or checks written out to Sidnee Weigold only and an ATM will be on site.
