Willis, August 23 – The close-knit community of Montgomery County will show an outpouring of love and devotion to each other and to the family of Cayden Raine Towery, who died on January 25, 2019, of complications of Spastic Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy, at a major fundraiser at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Willis on Highway 75 on Saturday, August 24, 2019, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The address is 16663 TX-75, Willis, Texas 77378.
Cayden’s beloved grandfather, Dean Towery, who served the City of Conroe as Director of Public Works from 1987 to 2012, spoke with The Golden Hammer yesterday morning. “When Cayden died, she left her parents, Shane and Castle Towery, with huge debts from her massive medical bills and funeral expenses. Cayden’s family needs help, because they have other children who miss their sister and whose parents remain devastated from the loss.”
Cayden was 14 when she went into the arms of the Lord. Her death was unexpected, although she had been in the intensive care unit at Texas Children’s Hospital.
The even will feature barbecue plates for $10 each, silent auction items, and live auction items. A number of guns and decorative items, which individuals specially made for this event, will be for sale in the auctions.
“One of the biggest items available as a raffle will be a hunting trip in San Saba, Texas,” Dean Towery said. “The trip will be for 2 people each of them allowed to kill one eight-point buck and a doe. There will be accommodations and means at a beautiful ranch house during the trip.”
A Tracy Lawrence autographed guitar, several items which Neal McCoy has autographs, and items which Johnny Cash autographed will also be for sale.
Jerrod Hyde, who worked for Dean Towery at the city, will provide live music.
