Barbecue, Yard Sale and Raffle for Brain Tumor Awareness | Buzz Blog
We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Barbecue, Yard Sale and Raffle for Brain Tumor Awareness



Tomas Hollenbach has not let a brain tumor diagnosis earlier this year slow him down. The fundraiser for Hollenbach and Brain Tumor Awareness is next Saturday, May 22.---

Right now is the perfect time to donate for an event like this- at the beginning of the summer, it seems everyone has toys, furniture, books and clothes lying around that you'll likely leave in boxes, move outside for spring cleaning, or maybe drop off at D.I. Instead, make the extra effort to drop these items off on May 21 from 1:30-7 p.m. at Channing Hall Charter School, so the school can sell them in support of brain tumor awareness and the Hollenbach family. If you have no gently used articles to give, consider bringing by some baked goods, hot dogs/buns, individually wrapped chips or cans of soda for the event.

The school is also still looking for businesses to donate any gift cards or other items for the raffle that will be happening in conjunction with the yard sale and barbecue, so if you are a local business owner or just a generous person, consider donating to this worthy cause. For more about Brain Tumor Awareness visit the National Brain Tumor Society.

If you want to donate to the raffle or barbecue, contact Sara Bannon @  and for even more on what you can do to help, last week's blog has information on other charitable options.
