A benefit dinner to help pay medical bills for Alex Gutierrez will be hosted by the Gutierrez family at the Sunnyside Fraternal Order of Eagles lodge from 4 to 8 p.m. this coming Saturday, June 30.
Gutierrez was diagnosed with stage four throat cancer in early February and had chemo and heavy radiation treatments five days a week for eight weeks.
Although the prognosis is good, the medical bills are not fully covered by insurance. All proceeds raised at the benefit dinner will go toward paying the bills.
Cost for the dinner is $7 for adults and $3.50 for children. The meal will consist of cheese enchiladas (one for children, two for adults), rice and beans and homemade salsa.
