As many of you know my brother Gene Highley fell seriously ill in April and after weeks of being in critical care on a vent fighting for his life we are overjoyed to report that he is expected to make a full recovery. Gene’s road to recovery will be a long and arduous one and it is unclear when he will be able to return to work.

Gene was and still is the primary source of income for their household and the crippling hospital and insurance costs as well as the household bills they are unable to pay are starting to affect his family’s wellbeing.  For in addition to their two children Gene and Deanna also live with and help support Deanna’s parents who for health reasons are unable to work as well.  

In an effort to help cover some of Gene’s insurance costs and give them a fighting chance while Gene works on his recovery we are asking that all his friends and family come together on one special evening and support Gene his wife and two Children in any way you can.  

On June 28th we are hosting our Giving for Gene event at Flagstone Crafts and Cocktails in Geneva, 101 W. State Street, Geneva, IL 60134 from 1pm – 7pm.

Cover charge will be $5.00 per person and light refreshments and non-alcoholic drinks will be served. Alcoholic drinks will be available for purchase.

Lots of fun donated items and baskets will be raffled off as well. Raffle tickets will be available for purchase at the event. 

Cash and Credit donations will be accepted in addition to the cover charge.

If you can’t attend and wish to still donate you can do so securely through this website. All proceeds from this event and donations on the site will be given to Gene and his family.

Thank you in advance for any help you can give.
