The event will be held Saturday, April 28, at First Christian Church, 320 E. Russell Road, Sidney. Doors open at 2:30 with the fundraiser starting at 3 p.m.

There will be a 50/50 drawing and silent auction, which includes COSI tickets, Kings Island tickets and Cincinnati Reds tickets. Concessions will be available.

Harris, 36, has had surgery to remove the initial tumor, which required the removal of his voice box. He now has a stoma. He is going through chemotherapy and radiation to eliminate any cancer cells that were left following the surgery.
