Auction, luncheon to benefit Kelley Miller

LANSING — Two months ago Kelley Miller’s life drastically changed when she sustained serious injuries in a hit-and-run accident on July 31.

As a result of the accident, the Mulliken resident is now a ventilator-dependent quadriplegic and needs to spend the next six to 12 months in a rehabilitation hospital in Colorado.

A benefit auction and luncheon is planned for Saturday, Sept. 17 from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Family Farm & Home located at 1870 E. Grand River in Portland.

Lunch (which includes pork sandwiches, chips, cake and beverages) is $8 for adults and $5 for children. All proceeds from the lunch will help offset the cost of travel, lodging and other expenses for her family while she is hospitalized.

“Kelley and her family are facing a long and expensive road to recovery,” said Sen. Rick Jones, R-Grand Ledge. “I encourage everyone to attend this event and help Kelley and her family finance their trip to Colorado so she can receive the medical care she needs. I look forward to attending this event and helping the Miller family. I hope to see you there.”
