Fundraiser set for woman in need of power wheelchair

GILBERTSVILLE, Pa. - An event Saturday aims to help a woman who can't use her arms or legs keep her independence.

A chicken barbecue, bake sale and 50/50 raffle will help Cindy Hettinger raise money for a new power wheelchair.

Her wheelchair still functions, but it's falling apart.

She even needs a battery to jump start it most mornings.

The event is set for Zerns Farmers Market in Gilbertsville at 2 p.m.

Organizers say they hope to raise nearly $12,000.
