Little Aurora Jean Scott has been diagnosed with juvenile idiopathic rheumatoid arthritis. The pretty 2-year-old loves life, animals and toys, in that order! Her grandmother, Jean Belson, is a former East Quogue resident who volunteered at the East Quogue Fire Department for 15 years and she needs our help.Jean is hosting a fundraiser for Aurora on Thursday, June 12, from 6 until 10 p.m., at The Birchwood located at 512 Pulaski Street in Riverhead. Tickets cost $35 if purchased in advance ($40 at the door) and include a buffet, deejay, cash bar and a Chinese auction. All proceeds will go toward paying Aurora’s mounting medical bills.
To buy tickets, or obtain more information, you can reach Jean at (631) 727-8192 or email@example.com.
Thanks to Barbara Marks, I found the best physical therapist on the East End and he lives and practices right here in East Quogue.
Jason Weeks at Back On Track is really helping me recover from my fall. I like the fact that he explains everything to me: What he is doing and what I am feeling. So, if you are in need of a great physical therapist, call Jason at (631) 766-1991.
