FullerStong fundraiser Saturday at Civic Center
Though her life was cut short by cancer a little over five years ago, Morgan Fuller created a legacy of inspiration, faith, and a fighting spirit that continues to this day – and Morgan’s family is inviting everyone to come out to the Carroll County Civic Center on Saturday to take part in that legacy, honor Morgan’s memory, help raise money for worthy causes, and just enjoy an evening of food, fun, and fellowship.
Proceeds from this year’s FullerStrong Dinner & Auction will go toward helping children with various health problems and families in need, as well as for college scholarships.
The doors will open at the Civic Center at 4:30, and barbecue dinners will be served, starting at 5 p.m.
The event will feature both a live and silent auction, and the local band 24/7 will crank up with live music at 5:30 p.m.
Tickets for the event are $10 for adults and will include a barbecue plate and a number to participate in the auctions.
Children eight years of age and under will get in free.
The daughter of Jeff and Wanda Fuller of Huntingdon, Morgan was 16 when she was diagnosed with a rare and very aggressive form of cancer in September of 2015. After a valiant battle with her illness, Morgan passed away on January 11, 2017, just two months short of her 18th birthday on March 3 and half a school year short of graduation from Huntingdon High School.
But during those last months of her life, Morgan set an unforgettable example of courage, faith, and love, even taking part in efforts to help other children with illnesses while she was struggling with her own.
“This was her dream,” said her mother. “She wanted to help others.”
Mrs. Fuller encouraged everyone to come out on Saturday and help them celebrate Morgan’s birthday and her extraordinary life.
“We couldn’t do this without our community’s support,” she said.
