In the summer of 2009, Young was first diagnosed with Lyme disease. In 2010, Young’s son, Treshon, also contracted Lyme disease.

Young’s ongoing treatment involves traveling to New York to see a Lyme disease specialist. Her son requires medical care from his Lyme specialist which is a four-hour drive from home. The family has incurred more than $20,000 in out-of-pocket medical expenses.

Some of the prizes include a Melines Lodge stay (sportsman’s package), Arnesen’s Rocky Point Resort stay, a guided fishing trip, St. Croix Rods, massages, gift certificates, etc.

Tickets for the dinner can be picked up at Northeast Liquor, Green Laner, Rohlfing Distributing, Babe Winkelman Productions and Minnesota Vacuum.

Donations may also be sent to Benefit Fund for Tracie Young, Mid-Minnesota Federal Credit Union, 200 S. Sixth St., Brainerd, MN 56401.
