for Nate Gentry is Saturday
Many interesting items have been received for the Gentry medical benefit next weekend. Thirty-nine-year-old Nate Gentry of Cottonwood was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor earlier this year and is facing mounting doctor bills.
Include on the auction are four new chainsaws, five guns, ammo, gun cases, two fire pits, a handmade log table, a cord of wood, 50# of hamburger and sausage bundles, kitchen appliances, and a used ATV. There are also many baskets as well as several full-body massages. Of special interest to some might be the restored 1945 Oliver Cletrac and a 1952 D-2 Cat.
The benefit is on Saturday, September 16th, beginning at 4:00 p.m. in the Cottonwood Community Hall. There will be a silent auction and a live auction. Rodonna’s in Cottonwood will be catering a Taco and Taters food bar. Many area grocery stores have helped with the food and drinks for the evening.
Nate has a wide circle of friends, and many people want to help him with his growing medical bills. Nate’s insurance had a high deductible, and of course it doesn’t pay for 100% of all the bills. Quite likely he will have to have one more surgery this fall, although hopefully it won’t be quite as critical as the first one.
Accounts have been opened at the Cottonwood Credit Union and at the Pine Tree Credit Union, and a GoFundMe account has been set up. For more information or to donate an item, please call Lynette Gentry at 208-791-1110 or Todd Stenzel at 208-983-6033.
This restored 1945 Oliver Cletrac is one of the items to be auctioned to help pay Nate Gentry's medical bills. Below is a 1952 D-2 Cat that will also be auctioned.
