CH­ESTER — The Kent Is­land Yacht Club is host­ing a special fundraiser for Lana Ham­mond of Grasonville, “Help Get Lana Back on Her Feet,” from 1 to 6 p.m. Satur­day, Aug. 25, at the yacht club pav­il­ion. Ham­mond, who was born in her par­ent’s home in Grasonville and has lived her en­tire life in Queen Anne’s County, re­cently lost the lower por­tion of her left leg due to a vas­cu­lar is- sue. For most of her work­ing life, she has been a bar­tender or server at lo­cal restau­rants such as No Place, R’s Amer­i­cantina, and, for the past many years, the Kent Is­land Yacht Club. She will be out of work for the fore­see­able fu­ture as she adapts to us­ing a pros­thetic leg.

The event, which is sup­ported by many lo­cal busi­nesses, or­ga­ni­za­tions and res­i­dents, will fea­ture hot dogs, ham­burg­ers, sal­ads and sides, beer (with special thanks to G&G Dis­trib­u­tors and Kelly Dis­tribut­ing), so­das, mu­sic all day pro­vided by La­mont, Chuck, Coy and Friends and D.J. Tommy, a corn­hole tour­na­ment, games, a silent auc­tion, 50/50 raf­fle and a cake wheel. Tick­ets are $20 each and may be pur­chased at the Kent Is­land Yacht Club or at the door on the day of the event. There also will be a cash bar.

The corn­hole tour­na­ment will award cash prizes: $400 for first place, $200 for sec­ond place and $100 for third place. Lo­cal res­i­dent and corn­hole cham­pion, Chad Stringer is or­ga­niz­ing the tour­na­ment. Call 410-490-9856 for in­for­ma­tion or to sign up.
