DERRY — A local preschool is supporting one of its own.
The Learning Path is hosting a benefit fundraiser to support former student Ava Doiron-Frankland and her family.
The event will be March 8 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the school, 16 New Hampshire Route 111 in Derry.
Ava was diagnosed last month with a cancerous brain tumor and is currently undergoing treatment in Boston.
She attended the Learning Path programs for nursery and pre-kindergarten classes, and is attending kindergarten now in Salem.
She still has a little sister attending the school.
The fundraiser includes gift basket raffles, gift certificates and other items to be raffled off. There will be free activities for children and their families, including face-painting and refreshments.
All proceeds will go to support Ava’s family.
