A benefit titled “Raise the Rouf” is set for Saturday, Sept. 29 to help raise money and show support for 24-year-old Natalie Rouf who is currently fighting breast cancer.
Daughter of Dave and Sue Roufs of Waverly, Natalie resides in Arlington and works as a licensed practical nurse at Glencoe Regional Health Services.

For its first year, the organization has chosen Roufs.
The event will take place Saturday, Sept. 29 at Green Isle’s Club New Yorker from 4 p.m. to 12:30 a.m.
With a suggested $20 donation, the event will offer an opportunity to purchase a variety of raffle tickets for drawings, live music performed by Trailblazers from 4 to 7 p.m. and Kadence from 8:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m., food, and refreshments.
