Benefit Dinner and Concert For Rare Brain Cancer Victim

Shelby Kerns / Facebook

A benefit will be held in support of Shelby Kerns on June 6, 2019 at Northern Grand Gardens, who was recently diagnosed with a rare form of Brain Cancer called an Ependymoma.  Because of the rare nature of her diagnosis, Shelby will be travelling to the United States for Proton therapy treatment in the coming weeks. This event hopes to offset some of Shelby’s out of pocket expenses while she gets the treatment she needs.

Tickets are now on sale for $30 each and include dinner, entertainment, and a chance to win the door prize of a 55” TV. Support tickets are also available for $20 each and include entry to the door prize.  Many local businesses have generously donated prizes for silent auction during the evening.  Local musicians Shannon Moan and Frank Deresti will be providing entertainment during the mealtime, and later in the evening The John Barber Band will take the stage, followed by PAROBOL – A Tool Experience to close out the night.  Cash bar will be available.

Tickets are available at EXIT Realty Lake Superior, located at 207 Northern Avenue in Sault Ste Marie.  This event is expected to sell out, so please get your tickets in advance! Thank you in advance Sault Ste Marie!


Shelby Kerns was raised in Bruce Mines and lives in Sault Ste Marie with her partner Cory and their three year old daughter Lryic.  Anyone who has ever met Shelby has been touched by her loving spirit and fun-loving nature.  Shelby currently works as a Sales Representative with EXIT Realty Lake Superior.

Shelby will overcome this obstacle, and has many exciting plans for her future!
