A “We Support Gracie!” waffle breakfast benefit will be held Saturday, March 1, from 7 AM – Noon at La Porte City Elementary School.

The benefit is designed to assist Gracie Stamatiades and her family with medical expenses. Gracie, a kindergarten student at La Porte City Elementary School has epilepsy and will be undergoing brain surgery at the Mayo Clinic in March.

In addition to the freewill donation collected at the breakfast, a baked goods silent auction will be conducted. A number of themed baskets will be raffled, including a special Galena Getaway package at Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa, valued at over $500.

In conjunction with the benefit, Tootsie’s Ice Cream and More will donate a portion of their sales receipts from the first two days of March.
