Sweets For Gavin: Fundraiser To Raise Funds For Delmar Boy

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - A local eatery is hosting a fundraiser to help pay for a Delmar boy's medical bills.

Gavin Bender is the little Delmar boy who met country singer Cassadee Pope last month.

Gavin's mother says because of 47 ABC's story a number of people reached out asking how they could20 percent of their sales to the Bender family. Gavin was recently diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitis, a chronic and very rare disease that causes white blood cells to build up in his esophagus.

"We still have no furniture. We still need paint. There's medical expenses now that aren't being covered by his insurance," said Rebecca Bender, Gavin's mother.

This is one of two fundraisers at Sweet Frog. The next one is this Saturday from 5 until 8 PM.
