Benefit at festival
A benefit will be held for Andrew Katona, a Crown Point High School graduate and Wheatfield resident who was hit by a motor vehicle Aug. 29 and ejected from his motorcycle, suffered life threatening injuries. Airlifted to the Oak Lawn Trauma Center, he remains in stable, but critical, condition and is fighting to return home to his three young daughters. During the Sand Hill Crane Festival, Hoffman’s Barbell will have a Powerlifting and Strongman Show, with a portion of the proceeds from all lifter entries donated to the Katona family. There will also be a bake sale, an auction for six-month memberships, T-shirts and personal training and a 50/50 raffle. Bub’s BBQ will have a food booth at the festival and will donate all proceeds to the benefit.
