Artists Help Sisters

What: Fundraiser Concert
Where: Birmingham Gardens Bowling Club
When: Sunday June 27, 1999

A FUNDRAISER held at the Heaton-Birmingham Gardens Bowling Club on Sunday, June 27, has raised $1500 for two sisters who are wasting away from a mystery metabolic disease.

The sisters, LEANNA, 5, and BETHANY MILLS, 5, of Glendale, both have a disease that is slowly and painfully reducing their bone density.

The sisters need money to fly to America to consult with a metabolic specialist, but the consultation, fares and accommodation will cost the sisters' Glendale family about $30,000.

Artists including SUE BENNETT, DAVE ALLENBY, HUGH GORDON, BROOKE HARVEY, CHRIS and CAROL DONOVAN and the CORSICA duo performed for free at the Sunday afternoon performance.
