Rutland Town resident Paula McNeill was involved in a serious accident in January. She is currently at Spaulding Rehab Facility in Boston. Despite her paralysis, McNeill has a positive attitude, strong will, and a fierce determination to continue to be independent.
To help make her transition to a more active lifestyle easier, friends of McNeill are sponsoring a fundraising event Friday, Feb. 26, at five area restaurants.
Tickets of $25 apiece will provide dinner deals at Sushi Yoshi, Peppinos, Three Tomatoes Trattoria, Lookout Tavern and Baja Burrito.
All proceeds will go to the Paula McNeill Adaptive Equipment Fund.
To purchase tickets, make checks payable to "Paula McNeill Fund" and mail to: Killington Chamber of Commerce, P.O. Box 114, Killington 05751.
Tickets may also be purchased on the internet by visiting www.paulamcneill.com. Donations to the fund can be mailed to the Killington Chamber of Commerce or on the website. For more information, contact Lynn Boynton at email@example.com.
