Love for Lilee grows and grows

Lilee-Jean Whittle Putt at the centre of massive fundraising efforts

In the past two months, the lives of the Whittle Putt family have changed drastically, as their one-year-old daughter Lilee-Jean battles an aggressive form of brain caner. However, there has been an incredible outpouring of love and support from the community, stretching from Agassiz to Chilliwack to Abbotsford.

Now, an event in Harrison Hot Springs is hoping to help contribute to the family, as they put their lives on hold to care for their daughter.

The Layback Lounge will feature a live music, silent auction night on Friday December 16 at 8 p.m. Musical acts include Trevor McDonald, Leenie Bennett, The Corrupted Gentlemen, 9:31 and Desiree Ferrero.
