April 15th was a very special day for the city of Nanticoke. Community members united over one common problem, the health of the mayor, Rich Wiaterowski.

Rich has been battling leukemia for roughly 5 months and has undergone multiple stem cell transplants.

The community has taken it upon themselves to provide comfort and support through the family’s tough time. They displayed this raining hospitality last weekend with a benefit event to help raise money towards expenses for the family.

The event had an enormous turnout. People from all over the valley joined together for something near and dear to their hearts. The crowd was entertained by live music and basket raffles. The GNA Cheerleaders were there to serve food from 1-5pm.

Good luck Mayor Wiaterowski! We are all rooting for you.
