On April 14, a benefit will be held at the LOTO Lounge in Osage Beach to help ease the financial strain of Burrow and her family at this time.
Over the last thirteen years, Danielle Johnson Burrow’s brain tumor has been in remission. Though Burrow has been fine during this period, the tumor has returned and will place Burrow in medical care. When her Providence Bank coworkers found out, they wanted to do something to help Burrow, who had become like a family member to them in the years that they had worked together. As a graduate of Camdenton High School, they felt the community would want to support one of their own.
On April 14 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., a benefit will be held at the LOTO Lounge in Osage Beach to help ease the financial strain of Burrow and her family at this time. Susan Calvert, one of Burrow’s coworkers who is he;ping to set up the event, says there will be a number of offerings on hand during the event and silent auction. This includes locally donated items found businesses in Camdenton, Osage Beach and more, and also a pair of Kenny Chesney tickets at the Mizzou Arena. The $10 for the event will also gain access to a pulled pork dinner and live music by Bill and Hailey with Sax on the Beach.
Burrow says she found about the fundraiser nearly a month ago. She has been off of work since January and says that when her coworkers called and told her about what they had planned to do, it brought her to tears.
“It’s amazing,” Burrow said. “A lot of people have reached out to me offering support. I’ve never seen so many people come together. It brings tears to my eyes all the time. It means a lot.”
Burrow says she has received a number of personal donations already, including monetary sums and food. She says she has also received a lot of verbal support from those in the community asking if she needed someone to talk to through this time.
When they came up with the idea, Calvert says it was a team effort to pull everything together and make the event a reality. She says they worked towards targeting different areas of the lake and have seen support from everywhere.
“She’s special, she’s a good one,” Calvert said. “There’s no one more loving and giving than Danielle. She’s deserving of anything and everything the community will give her.”
Calvert says they are still accepting donations for the silent auction and fundraising efforts. Anyone interested in bringing forth any donations can bring them to the Providence Bank location in Osage Beach on KK.
