Cleveland, TN – A fundraiser was held on July 11, 2017 to help raise money for a fly fishing trip in Montana for Colton Malone. Colton is the son of City employee, Ryan Malone.
Colton is 20 years old and was diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer in December 2015. This June, he was informed the cancer returned and invaded his lymphatic system as well as his heart. Colton is an avid fisher and always wanted to fly fish out west. Ryan’s co-workers wanted to help make this wish become a reality.
Approximately $2,000 was raised during the benefit. Many local businesses including: Billy Haney Meat Company, Cleveland/Bradley Keep America Beautiful, Cooke’s Food Store Flowers Bakery, Food City, Hardee’s, Mrs. Winner’s, Old Fort Restaurant, Piggly Wiggly and Save-A-LOT food stores donated the food, beverages and/or materials needed for the fundraiser. A special thanks to the City Public Works staff for organizing this event.
