'My Name is Dave'


Organizers of Saturday’s “My Name is Dave” benefit hope to raise money as well as promote Dave Saatoff’s realization that no one is immune to cancer.

Saatoff, a Consolidated Telecommunications Co. (CTC) product engineer, died Oct. 25 after a battle with brain cancer. His co-worker, Kristi Westbrock, director of human resources and operations at CTC, said he was a 52-year-old with a good job and a great family.
