WALLA WALLA -- An ice cream social will be hosted Wednesday from 6-8 p.m. at the Walla Walla Community College baseball-soccer fields on Tausick Way.
The event benefits city resident Dan Needham, who needs a heart transplant. It will be presented by Crop Production Services, where Needham works.
Needham and his wife, Julie, are living in Seattle awaiting a donor heart, noted Jamie Gritman with Crop Production Services. "This is quite expensive for them. We are hoping that if we all work together with small gestures, they will add up to huge amounts for Dan and Julie and take a little of the burden off of them."
The event is free and donations for the Needhams will be accepted. For more information call 525-4920. There is also a benefit account established at Baker Boyer Bank. Donations can be made at any branch.
