Turner benefits

An Online Origami Owl party is being held for Jessica Turner to help financially support her battle against cervical cancer. Go to www.ericaantonuccio.origamiowl.com and place orders under “Jessica Turner’s Party” (you will see a drop down menu at checkout). This will run from now until Oct. 11. Another benefit for Turner will be held at Pizza Hut from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Oct. 2. Sales on Oct. 2 will result in 15 percent of proceeds going to Turner. For a coupon (not available the day of the event at Pizza Hut), contact Cathy Coughlin Frazier, Jeremy or Tara Turner or Fifth Avenue Cake Works, or visit Pizza Hut between now and Oct. 1. There will be a jar at the register also, and all those donations will go directly to Turner.
