Paying It Forward for Sandy Davis Fundraiser @ Paddy's Sports Bar

For over 20 years, our community has been blessed by the presence of a very special lady: Sandra “Sandy” Davis. She has been a comfort, life raft, cheerleader, hand-holder and prayer captain for children and adults in need throughout our community. Now, it is Sandy who needs support, and our community has the opportunity “pay it forward” for her. This fundraiser will help Sandy and her husband, Bob, with medical bills from the last two year battle with cancer and stem cell transplant.
