Eddie Duran’s many friends are currently planning a fund-raiser to help with the medical expenses his family is incurring due to the stroke he suffered about a week ago. He remains hospitalized in an ICU at press time.
Organizers, including his longtime friend Noah Sarnowski, have settled on a benefit barbecue, camp-style dinner prepared by Clayton Randall. Sarnowski says it will be beef, cowboy beans and all the fixings.
The dinner will be served for donations.
The benefit is set for 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 3 at Payson Concrete
Benefit organizers have also scheduled several raffles including one that has as a prize a full Angus beef, cut, prepared and freezer-ready. Friends of Eddie’s have also donated seven rifles, which will be raffled
Tickets for the beef and rifles will be sold for $20 each or six for $100.
Also, Sarnowski received an envelope donation containing $1,000 in cash, which will be raffled. Tickets are $50 each.
Raffle tickets may be purchased at Bud’s Plumbing, Payson Concrete, NAPA Auto and Semstream.
Eddie, a longtime Payson Little League coach and board member, is employed at Payson Concrete as a truck driver. He and his wife, Ellen, have three sons.
