Fundraising event to help pay for service dog training
The Life Is Sweet spring carnival, auction and vendor fair will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday at Shawnee Trail Church of Christ, 10633 John W. Elliott Drive in Frisco.
Admission is free. There will be carnival games, bounce houses and vendors along with a silent auction. Bidding for some of the auction items is available online at briancallie2017 .eflea.ca. The online auction closes at 10 p.m. Tuesday.
All proceeds from the event will help Brian Ellis, a Frisco teen who was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes last year. He is raising money to have his dog Callie trained to be a diabetic alert dog. The dog’s training is being done through the nonprofit All Purpose Canines.
