Fundraiser to Benefit Local Mother's Family February 21

Posted: Updated:

Last week a local mother of four passed away, after she suffered an asthma attack that sent her into cardiac arrest. Next week, friends are hosting a fundraiser to help the family of Jennifer Perkins-Hamburger.

The family was in the process of moving from Reno to New Orleans when Jennifer suffered an asthma attack on January 28th. She was in the ICU at Renown for a week before her death last Tuesday. She leaves behind her husband and her children ages 8, 6, 4 and nine months.

Her friends say she did not have health insurance.

Organizers behind the fundraiser have changed the location since they're expecting a big turnout.

The benefit dinner is scheduled for Friday, February 21st at North Valleys High School from 5pm-8pm. It costs $10 per family and every penny will benefit the Hamburger family.

Donations can also be made through the Jennifer Hamburger Fund at Wells Fargo. The account is #2434680423.
