'Fight for Frank' Benefit Headed to Garfield

Fundraiser at The Venetian restaurant on March 20

Coming on the heels of a successful Blue Moon benefit, "Fight for Frank" will be hosting another event to help ailing Wyckoff resident Frank Chamberlin.

"An Evening of Friendship and Hope" is scheduled for Wednesday, March 20, from 7 to 11 p.m. at the Venetian in Garfield.

The cost is $120 per person or $200 per couple.

Local merchants from Wyckoff and adjacent towns have donated [gift certificates] for baskets and there are also some great items for our silent auction, such as sporting events and travel," said Organizer Kristen Marino.
"We would like to encourage all community members to attend and support a fellow Wyckoff resident."

Details are on the invite attached to this article and at fightforfrank.org

Chamberlin, a Wyckoff resident and former NFL player, suffered a seizure last year when he was 24 and collapsed at work.

He was diagnosed with anaplastic astrocytoma (grade 3 glioma), a severe form of brain cancer. Chamberlin underwent surgery that partially removed the tumor, but was left with ongoing seizures and significant speech impairment.

'Fight for Frank' was founded in late last year in an attempt raise $200,000 toward Chamberlin's medical bills.
