Fundraiser set to help cancer patient

MOHAWK - A cancer fundraiser is set to be held Dec. 8 at the Mohawk School in Mohawk. The event runs from noon until 3 p.m. Admission is $8 with children younger than six free.

The benefit is to be held for Mike Sprenger, who was recently diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer and does not have health insurance. Sprenger is the owner of Sprenger Electric.

The event will consist of a spaghetti dinner served with rolls, cole slaw, desserts and beverages. There will also be a 50/50 drawing, a bake sale and a silent auction. Music will be provided by Steve Jones, Sheriff Ron Lahti and Rob Fritz.

Elaine Hall is one of the people helping to put on the event, along with her husband Tom and Sprenger's friend Cliff Perreault.

Hall said the event for Sprenger is a great cause and helps a good man.

"He's a very quiet person, but he does a lot of work for people locally," Hall said. "Mike didn't want us to do anything but his son said 'We have all these friends who want to help.'"

Sprenger has been accepted into the Mayo Clinic which, according to Hall, costs $5,000 just for the clinic to see someone.

"He got in there pretty quick because of his situation," Hall said.

Donations can be made at Superior National Bank branches under the account Gitchee Gumee Bible Camp for Mike Sprenger.
