Kelly Eckerdt fundraiser set for Feb. 14

A fundraiser for Powell resident Kelly Eckerdt is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 14, in Powell.

Eckerdt, the wife of Powell Chief of Police Roy Eckerdt, is scheduled to receive a donated kidney in a transplant to take place in the near future in Denver when doctors give the go-ahead. Her medical expenses are expected to run between $50,000 and $100,000 after insurance.

A Valentine’s Day Ball for Kelly is being held from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Feb. 14 at the Commons in downtown Powell. Tickets are $25 each for a prime rib or teriyaki chicken dinner. There will also be a silent auction during the evening.

Tickets are available at Powell Office Supply, Dan’s Boot and Saddle and Arrowhead RV.
