ROCHELLE — Family and friends of Rochelle residents Terry and Melissa Gabbard are coming together in a show of support by hosting a benefit for them on Saturday, March 23 from 2-5 p.m. at the Rochelle VFW Post 3878.

The benefit includes spaghetti and pizzas catered by Alfano’s Pizza with a suggested donation of $7 per person; any donation is appreciated. There will also be a 50/50 raffle and a silent auction.

Terry has endured a series of medical events beginning with a perforated esophagus during an endoscopy followed with emergency surgery where cancer was discovered, leading to a diagnosis of stage 4 esophageal adenocarcinoma. The 52 year-old Marine, father, grandfather and friend to many has been unable to work since August of 2018.

“Melissa (Terry’s wife) is trying to manage all of the finances and work full time,” Phyllis Dyer, Melissa’s mother, said. “My granddaughter, Katelyn, is taking a year off from Northern [Illinois University] to help her dad.”

Dyer has been delivering flyers regarding the benefit around Rochelle the past few days.

“We keep getting more and more items for the silent auction every day, and welcome donations of any kind. We welcome the community to attend the event, the more people we can get there, the better,” Dyer added.

Silent auction items available include:  Cubs baseball tickets, baseball autographed by Lou Boudreau, Billy Williams and Fergie Jenkins; baseball autographed by Vince Coleman; autographed photo of Green Bay Packer Ray Nitschke; several Hall of Fame cards; Weather Tech floor mats; Auto Hub detail; Masterbend oil change with safety inspection; T-Byrds family bowling and burger night; Cypress House; Expressions; Sawicki Motors; Christmas stocking; baby quilt; and Rochelle Insurance.
