Tickets are $20 and include a glass of wine or hard cider (non-alcoholic options are available), souvenir wine glass, and sweet and savory appetizers. A portion of all tickets sold, along with additional glasses of beverages, go to the Banton Family.

You may also support the Banton Family with a t-shirt designed by M-22 here.

The backstory: Just two years ago, beloved OMPS elementary teacher and mother of three, Erin Banton was diagnosed with Stage I Breast Cancer. (Erin’s husband Travis is Kathy Fouch’s son and Ann and Howard Fouch’s grandson).

Alongside her loving husband, family, and network of supporters, Erin fought and beat that cancer with grace and strength. Erin’s fight recently began anew with a diagnosis of an even more formidable foe: Stage IV Metastatic Breast Cancer.

Though she must now battle harder against greater odds, Erin remains admirably upbeat, reminding all of us that “love always wins,” that you must “smile in the face of fear,” and that somehow, “it could always be worse.”

While Erin and her family work tirelessly to navigate the treacherous landscape of uncertainty and worry, along with the strain of additional surgery, medical treatments, lost income, and the myriad financial burdens of fighting a disease, this fundraiser will help to ensure that money is the least of their worries.
