Shopping for a Cause is an annual event held in the spring coordinated by April McQuade. For each event the vendor fees and proceeds are donated to a family in need within our community. This event will benefit the family of Ashley Plagman.
Saturday, November 28th, 2020 Ashley passed away unexpectedly at the age of 27 after suffering from a blood clot. She left behind her 3 year old son Keeegan, daughter Brayleigh, just 3 months old at the time, and boyfriend Jeff Haas. Since Ashley’s passing Jeff has taken on the role of single dad. Proceeds from this event will help cover the kid’s daily expenses.
The event will be held Saturday, March 13th from 10am-2pm at the Waukon Banquet Center. There will craft and vendors selling products with a portion of their sales being donated to the family. We will also have a free-will offering bake sale and a raffle.
New this year, BE Catered will be offering a meal for carry-out. You’ll be able to pre-order your dinner; meatballs, mashed potatoes and gravy, ham, corn, and dinner roll for $10. $2 from every meal will be going to the family. Watch this event and BE Catered’s Facebook page for more details.
A special thanks to the Waukon Banquet Center for donating the use of the facility.
