We would like to invite all who would like to join for a “Show and Shine” on April 19th for a benefit in honor of McKayla Genoble. McKayla is an 8 year old resident of Iola, Ks.

Her doctors are giving her a 30%-40% chance of survival.  Let’s pull together as a community to help relieve the family of financial burden!

Donations of all sorts will be accepted. There is a beneficiary account set up for Kayla.

*Make checks payable to: McKayla’s Donation Fund at Community National Bank

There will be an auction, food booths, face paintings, hair cuts and more to help raise money for Kayla and her family.
