Teachers in the General McLane School District are coming together to help one of their colleagues who's battling cancer.

Tricia McAndrew is a teacher at James W. Parker Middle School.

Her battle with cancer has forced her to take the rest of the school year off, for treatment. So, her friends at the middle school are hosting a benefit this weekend to help her financially.

The benefit is set for this Saturday, May 1st from 1:00-6:00 p.m. at the Edinboro Fire Hall.

Tickets are $10. That includes food, music and fun. There will be more than 70 gift baskets raffled off, a 50/50, and changes to bid of lots of other great items.
