A paint and sip to benefit Mary Kriete, Union, will be held Saturday, Dec. 10, from 3 to 5 p.m., at Artzy Wallz Etc., 520 E. Main St., Union.

Kriete is in need of a life-saving kidney transplant. She is dependent on dialysis that must be performed four times per day at home.

A living donor with type O blood is being sought.

Even with insurance, there are many out-of-pocket expenses.

The fundraising campaign has been established through HelpHOPELive, a nonprofit organization that provides community-based fundraising guidance to patients and their families. All donations are tax deductible and held in a transplant fund. Money is administered for transplant-related expenses only.

To sign up for the paint and sip, people may make checks payable to HelpHOPELive. In the memo line note “In honor of Mary Kriete” and send to Andi Kempf, 731 W. Fifth St., Washington, MO 63090.

For more information, people may call Kempf, 636-221-4991 or email andikempf129@gmail.com.
