Staff at Chief Joseph Middle School and Hanford High School will stage a fundraiser for a Richland family from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday.
The event, called "Lean On Me," will benefit the family of Steve Tayamen, who has been diagnosed with cancer.
His wife, Tami, is a Richland School District employee, and they have a senior at Hanford High and another who has graduated.
Tickets are $5 and are being sold at Chief Joseph and at the door the night of the event.
The event at the Hanford High School cafeteria is a silent auction, dessert, punch and coffee with live entertainment.
