Sarah Shanks

A fund-raiser for the late Sarah Clawson Shanks will take place Sunday afternoon and evening at the Wayland Hotel.

Shanks, formerly from Dorr and a Wayland High School graduate, died Jan. 29 at a hospital in Knoxville, Tenn., after suffering seizures. She played softball for the Lady Wildcats.

Sarah has donated six of her organs as gifts of life.

She leaves behind her husband, Ryan, and their two children, Eli (4) and Robin (7). Donations at the fund-raiser will go toward medical expenses, a celebration of life, and her children.

The event will be held at the Hotel from 4 to 9 p.m., including a spaghetti dinner and cash bar.
