Bagging fundraiser for Monica Theis family — Lakeville
April 15 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Anyone shopping at the Cub Foods on Heritage Drive in Lakeville on Saturday, April 15, may have their groceries bagged by a media personality.
An annual cancer-fighting fundraiser is getting significant attention this year, due to the relentless efforts of the event’s organizer, Dawn Sauber.
“It’s just snowballed this year,” Sauber said of the grocery bagging fundraiser, set from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
For a donation, shoppers can have their groceries bagged by well-known personalities that include KDWB radio’s Steve-O, KARE-11’s Jana Shortal, former Minnesota Viking Pete Bercich, Twin Cities Live’s Mike Marcotte, KFAN radio’s Paul Allen, and FOX-9’s Leah Beno, Dawn Stevens and Kelly O’Connell.
Other volunteer baggers are Lakeville Mayor Doug Anderson and state Sen. Matt Little, who first bagged at the event last year.
Money donated to the baggers will be given to help Monica Theis, a 44-year-old single mother who was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma at age 19.
Theis underwent numerous difficult treatments and surgeries and at one point thought the cancer was gone, but in 2015 she was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer that had metastasized to her bones and lungs and had become incurable.
People are encouraged people to shop at Cub during the fundraiser.
