A fundraiser is being put together for a woman who walked away from a house explosion in July. Joy Crawford’s home in the Mountview area was destroyed in the early morning hours of July 23rd. The woman works at the Great Northern Casino and is slowly recovering. Her co-worker Lois Nell says the fundraiser, called Jokes for Joy, would really help Crawford out.
“Joy is on her own and she has worked here for ten years. I know it is going to be very hard for her to struggle back and try to get in the shape she needs to be in to try and make a living again. She has lost everything.”
The Jokes for Joy fundraiser will be held on September 13th at the Great Northern Casino with doors opening at 6:00 pm.
Anyone who wants to attend the event can head to the casino to get their tickets for $40.
