Little Lilee-Jean headed home

Fundraisers for Andrew Putt's daughter continue in Agassiz, as toddler heads home

There was some good news for Lilee-Jean Whittle-Putt this week, a toddler who is fighting for her life after being diagnosed with cancer.

On Wednesday, her father announced that the family was leaving the hospital for home, for the first time in many weeks. Putt grew up in Agassiz, and support for his daughter has been strong since her diagnosis earlier this fall, especially in the local schools.

A fundraiser recently raised hundreds of dollars for the family, and the electronic board at AESS has read: Love for Lilee Putt.

Now, Deanne Edmondson has organized another way for locals to show Lilee-Jean they care. With the help of a few friends, and local sponsors, she is holding a Spaghetti Dinner at the Agassiz Legion next Friday.

It will be open to families, and admission is by donation, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

At press time, sponsors included Super Valu, Petro’s Pizza and Fields, who each have donated supplies for the night.

Edmondson is planning for about 200 people to attend, but RSVPs are not necessary.  Local singer Adam Briscoe will be donating his time to entertain for the evening, too.

If you would like to help out in any way, call 604-378-5728.
