Langdon's Tonya Peterson focus of Nov. 23 benefit
NDAD is sponsoring a benefit in Langdon for an advanced lung cancer patient, Tonya (Arens) Peterson, on Sat., Nov. 23, at the Langdon Eagles Club.

Tonya's cancer is stage IV and non-curable. It was first diagnosed in the fall of 2016. She's been unable to work since undergoing full-brain radiation at the University of Minnesota this past August.

Benefit highlights include a freewill-offering smoked beef and pork supper that starts at 5 p.m., a silent auction that starts at noon and continues until 8 p.m., raffles and bingo, plus music with live DJ Russ Lund.

Learn more and donate to Tonya and her family HERE, where you may donate directly online using a credit card or PayPal and learn other ways to help the Petersons. A PDF of The Tonya Benefit poster also is available for download on that page.
