How beautiful a day can be when kindness touches it
October 23, 2021
Christina Athans was a kindhearted young woman always thinking of others before herself. She loved the outdoors and nature, enjoying hiking on our many trails. She lived by the saying, "How beautiful a day can be when kindness touches It." Her beautiful life was cut short by pancreatic cancer. But even then, knowing the end was near, she thought of others. She told her mom and dad, Pat and Alex, to have people make donations to pancreatic cancer research in lieu of flowers. She wanted to help find a cure so that no one else would suffer and die from this horrible disease.
Pat and Alex Athans have been true to the promise they made their daughter. With the help of Major Jason E. George VFW post 12114 they have raised over $120,000 for cancer research in their six annual Pancreatic Cancer Fundraisers here in Tehachapi.
On Saturday, Oct. 23 at the veterans Memorial Building, 125 E. F Street, Tehachapi, we will have the seventh annual fundraiser. Enjoy a complimentary lasagna dinner, along with drawings for cash prizes and a silent auction. Doors will open for the auction at 5 p.m.
Yours truly will be the Master of Ceremonies and we have some special gifts for the silent auction. Come join your friends and neighbors for a fun evening for a worthy cause! Reservations are not required, just come on down the evening of Oct. 23.
Hope to see you there!
