JAY — Family and friends are planning a benefit for Kelly Dube, who has leukemia.

The spaghetti dinner, silent auction and dance will be held July 13 at VFW Post 3555 on Jewell Street, according to family members.

Members of the Crash Road Band will perform at a benefit for Kelly Dube of Sabattus on July 13 at the VFW in Jay.

Dube was raised in the Livermore area and graduated from Livermore Falls High School in 1988. She is living with her sister Anne Marie and brother-in-law Bruce Cantin in Sabbatus.

Dube is being treated for leukemia at Maine Medical Center in Portland. She is undergoing intense chemotherapy, according to a letter from benefit organizers.

Co-chairpersons of the benefit committee are Gail Kerns-Dube and Lorraine (Dube) Cushing.

Proceeds will help ease the financial burden to Kelly Dube and family.


“We gratefully accept donations to the benefit which are tax-deductible,” according to the letter.

Admission for the entire night is $10 per person, Kerns-Dube said.
