Scrabble for Eleanor *Benefit*

One week ago, a 4-month-old infant was hospitalized after she stopped breathing. Eleanor was unconscious for 9 days, but just woke up! She has permanent brain damage, and will require a lot of expensive care in the near and long-term future.

Her parents - Andrew and Andrea Weiher - and grandmother - Debbie Reyes - are regulars in the ScrabblePDX MeetUp group I organize. Andrew and Andrea also have a 4-year-old girl. We want to support them in every way we can, so we are organizing "Scrabble for Eleanor" to raise money for the family.

Please join us for this Scrabble Benefit. You can come for all 4 hours or just a game. ALL LEVELS ARE WELCOME! We'll be helping to organize ongoing games of 2, 3, or 4 players and can help set you up with a game you'll enjoy. Or get tips you really can use from some of our more experienced players.

We're not suggesting a specific donation amount - donate what you can. We also will be having a raffle for prizes that have been donated.

Feel free to bring friends. Let's help this amazing little girl and her family!

    I would love to help in anyway possible, but I have been injured and can't work for at least 2 months, so I can't afford a financial donation right now especially with property taxes due. I wish her luck though and she will be in my prayers.
