Chicken dinner, Bluegrass and a plea

Menard, IL, Clerk Angela Dilday lost her mom to Pancreatic Cancer a few years ago. But she turned her sorrow into action and now heads the annual "Raddle The Bottoms" benefit to provide medication to those suffering from the disease.

This annual event includes a chicken dinner and Bluegrass and Folk music for  entertainment. Held in Southern Illinois community of Raddle, it has raised more than $30,000 since 2007.

This year's outdoor event is scheduled for Sept. 26 at the Raddle, IL. St. Anns Church.

I have nothing but the utmost respect for someone who can take a personal tragedy and use it to inspire them to make something good.
I salute you Mrs. Dilday....well done.

Good for you, Angela. I, too, lost my mother to pancreatic cancer, and you are an inspiration.
