Super Stocking event raises money for two local causes

| December 12, 2013

COSHOCTON – More than 20 vendors set up their wares at the Super Stocking Event Tuesday, Dec. 10 at Coshocton Village Inn and Suites, reminding people to shop local this holiday season. Vendors included Scentsy, My Thirty-One, Pampered Chef, PeaceNik Wear, C & E Stones, and many independent vendors.

“We wanted to share what small businesses have to offer to the community for Christmas,” said Cherie Reveal, organizer of the event.

In addition to Christmas shopping, the event raised money for two local causes. One cause was for a young girl in the community with leukemia. During the Super Stocking event, baskets totaling more than $1,000 in prizes were raffled off for Team Emily. All proceeds went to Emily’s family for medical expenses. Emily has been hospitalized for over 90 days and the first symptom that something was wrong was a nose bleed.

“Emily is very intelligent, smart, and an outgoing person,” said Dana Moore who coordinated the raffle for the family. “She has a lot of friends at school and the school has given us a lot of support.”

The other was for Lucian Brinks, a local 12-year-old wrestler, who is the first wrestler from the area to be accepted into the Ohio All-Star Wrestling Team. The team has been in existence for 32 years and consists of 26 of the top 5th – 9th grade wrestlers in the state. Brinks will tour the country and wrestle 14 All-Star teams. He will travel with his team mates for 45 days June through August. He has been wrestling for five years.

“I’m looking forward to getting to train with some of the best kids in Ohio and out of Ohio,” said Brinks. “I like to wrestle because it’s the only sport where you’re in complete control of what happens.”

Brinks also has a website, or find him on Facebook to donate to his trip.
