The Danks family held a medical benefit and silent auction for their beloved family member Eric Danks on Mar. 8, 2024, at the New Town Civic Center. Eric Danks was involved in an accident and will have to travel back and forth from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN for medical care and potential surgeries.

Family members Kathy, Alaina Rose, Katie and Georgianna organized and put together the benefit with all of the Danks family members pitching in to help where needed.

Several local businesses like 52 West, DJ Sales LLC, Better B’s and TDH donated items for the silent auction or helped provide items for lunch.

This event was done through the love of the family and the community really showed their support. Attendance for the benefit was outstanding as the parking lot at the Civic Center was completely full of vehicles.

When a family is in need, the community shows up to support; eagerly lending a hand to help. Eric Danks and his loving wife Larissa Danks were very appreciative of all the love and support they were shown that day.

All procceeds will help Eric and family travel for the numerous medical procedures he will endure in the coming months.

If anyone would still like to support the Eric Danks family, they can use Cashapp: $LarissaDanks; or Venmo @Larissa-Danks. You can also donate directly to  Eric Danks’ personal account at Cornerstone Bank.
