There will be a benefit for Clark Fork native and long-time Yoke’s employee Corie Castle this Saturday.
Castle graduated from Clark Fork High School in 1992 and has been serving the community ever since by volunteering and being a foster parent.
Castle was recently diagnosed with Scleroderma, a chronic connective tissue disease that gradually hardens every organ in the body. She has been in and out of the hospital since August, and recently moved into a life-care facility.
To help with the loss of work and medical expenses, Clark Fork residents will host a benefit for her Saturday, March 24, at The Center in Clark Fork. There will be a no-host bar from 3-4 p.m., during which attendees can preview silent and live auction items, including overnight stays, local artwork and handmade goods. There will then be a $10 dinner 4-7 p.m. with the live auction happening at 5:30 p.m.
The learn more, call Vicki Bennett at 208-266-1698. Those who want to donate but can’t attend the event can send donations to Corie Castle Benefit, c/o The Center, P.O. Box 171, Clark Fork, Idaho 83811.
