This Sunday will mark a fundraiser held at the VFW Hall, Post 4139 on Daley Rd. from 12:30-7 p.m. MAYFIELD TWP. — As a result of a diving accident June 16 at Houghton Lake, Matt Zeeman, 30, of Davison, has been hospitalized and is now partially paralyzed and facing a lengthy recovery without the use of his legs. Fortunately for him, his friends and family have organized and coordinated efforts to help offset the monumental costs this ordeal will no doubt amass. This Sunday will mark one of those efforts, which will be held at the VFW Hall, Post 4139 on Daley Road.

The event is being hosted by Sawdust Corners Marathon Station and will be held this Sunday, July 16, from 12:30-7 p.m. The afternoon will offer music, food, baked goods and a silent auction as friends and family work together to help raise money for Zeeman in his time of need. The event is free, but meals and donations are welcome.

Zeeman, who co-owns the Pizza Peddlers in Mayfield Township, will be unable to work for an undetermined amount of time. But, thanks to friends, family and community members, who have volunteered to help and donate towards Zeeman’s recovery, his medical and personal bills will be considerably reduced by the money raised on the website GoFundMe.
