Kung fu academy to help patient awaiting kidney transplant
by Sherrie Norris
Blue Ridge Kung Fu Academy is hosting a kung fu demonstration and fundraiser from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, March 8, at Greenway Baptist Church in Boone.
A spokesperson for the event said proceeds will go to help with expenses of a family member of an academy student who is preparing for a kidney transplant.
Funds raised will help both the kidney recipient and the donor, who are siblings, with medical bills and related expenses incurred during the procedure and recovery period.
The highlight of the event will be martial arts demonstrations, in addition to a bake sale, silent auction, raffle and pizza. Admission is $5. Children younger than 6 will be admitted free. Greenway Baptist Church is located at 880 Greenway Road.
