The weather channel predicted rain, but the sun shone all day Saturday, Feb 28 in Cherokee Sound for a medical Fund Raiser for one of its own, Andrew Roberts, who has had a long battle with cancer.
It was a typical Cherokee event and people came from all over Abaco to support the cause. At the end of the day there were no outstanding bills for the food and supplies sold that day and they were able to clear more than $16,500.00.
They had a very successful auction with many valuable items. As usual, The Saturday Afternoon Cherokee Ladies Quilting Group donated a lovely handmade quilt that was much sought after, but there was also numerous other items donated such as a large flat-screen television, a microwave oven, a toaster and an electric drill, plus some original artwork painted by Jo-Ann Bradley, a local artist, just to mention a few.
The sold steak dinners, hamburgers and hot dogs and the bake stall was a popular stop for anyone with a sweet tooth with a wide variety of cakes and cookies, fudge and locally made macaroni n’cheese. Another big favourite of the day was homemade guava, soursop and chocolate ice cream.
But, first and foremost it was a day to meet and greet old and new friends, many with Cherokee roots.
