A Benefit pasta and salad dinner will be held on Friday, December 15 from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at Nuchie’s, 164 Central Street in Bristol to benefit the family of 4-year-old Liam Vavrek of Bristol.
Liam was diagnosed in late September with stage 4 kidney cancer after stomach pains brought him to the emergency room. An ultrasound revealed a mass on his kidney that was later determined to be a Wilms Tumor, one of the most common forms of kidney cancers found in young children.
Tickets to the benefit are $25 each and can be purchased by contacting Steve Bernier at (860) 385-3116.
Anyone unable to make the dinner but is interested in helping the family can make an online donation at https://www.gofundme.com/teamsuperliam or by sending a check made out to “Team Super Liam” c/o Webster Bank, 575 Farmington Avenue, Bristol, CT 06010.
