An event called "Celebrate a Survivor" will be held on July 12th to raise funds for a fighter and to support a wonderful cause.

Amy Gaiters, is currently battling her second round of breast cancer. The banquet will run from 3pm to 7pm at the Civic League Community Center. They will have a variety of different ways for people to support Gaiters in her fight.

Gaiters sister, and event coordinator, Elaina Keels, said, "Well we’re going to have a live jazz band, my cousin Jay from Columbus, he has a band he’s going to come and play. We have a silent auction, a raffle, things for kids to do, and we’re going to have a spaghetti dinner."

Gaiters says that seeing all of the support from the Zanesville Community really keeps her spirits up and allows her to think positive thoughts.

"It makes me feel good that there’s all these people in the community that care for me. I didn’t know that I had that many people that really cared about me and want to support me during this."

The family is currently requesting donations of paper plates, and meat for the spaghetti. If you would like to donate, you can call the number: (740)252-7773
