Chicken bog benefit scheduled Thursday for Frankie Rivers
The Cooks For Christ chicken bog benefit for Frankie Rivers will be held Thursday, Aug. 24, at the West Florence Fire Station on Pine Needles Road in Florence.
Since December, Frankie, 59, has had colon surgery, a stroke and two brain surgeries. He developed a rare and deadly form of bacterial meningitis and septic shock. He must undergo 6 to 9 weeks of intravenous antibiotics after the infection clears in his brain and bloodstream.
Cooks for Christ is raising funds to help with loss of income, medical and travel expenses, maintaining medical insurance premiums, medications, supplies and possible handicapped modifications to his residence.
A chicken bog lunch will be served, and dinner will be served from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. Drive through lanes will be open for convenience and a bake sale will be held all day.
The menu consists of chicken bog, green beans, slaw and bread. Plates are $7 each.
Lunch and dinner can be delivered for orders of seven plates or more. To schedule a delivery, complete a delivery form and fax or email according to instructions provided on the form.
To donate, please make checks payable to Frankie Rivers Medical Fund. They may be mailed to 3309 W. Hampton Pointe Drive, Florence, SC 29501
