This Thursday, September 27th, you can come to the Missoula Food Bank Community Center from 4:00 to 6:30 to attend a benefit for Jase Leister.

Jase in an 8-month-old diagnosed with Apert Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that causes fusion of the hands and feet, underdeveloped midfacial bones, and premature fusion of the skull. Jase has already had four surgeries and is scheduled for at least six more. The family has been running back and forth to different children's hospitals, and the cost has been adding up.

The benefit includes a silent auction, spaghetti dinner, face painting, a 50/50 raffle, and more. You can contact Jase's mother, Ashley Leister, at 406-203-6984 or embracingjase@gmail.com to purchase raffle tickets, wristbands, or just make a donation to the cause. You can also follow Jase's journey on the Facebook page #EmbracingJase.
