Spotlight Story of the Month

#DavianStrong Benefit

 Our community sticks together. And it stays together. Through tornados, fires, catastrophic accidents, deaths and all things that fall in between, our community is there. Always. Helping.  Well, we have another reason to rise up as a team.

Last year, Spencer and Cassidy Ward moved to the Magnolia Point subdivision in Josephine without knowing anyone in the area. In early November, their son five year old Davian was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma cancer. Adding to that was a new baby, two month old Draeton Ward.

The Magnolia Point Community started a grassroots campaign, holding corn hole tournaments in their limited space. In the process of obtaining permits, it came to the attention of the City of Josephine and the Josephine Police Department, who in a joint effort, stepped up the plate to help.

On Saturday, September 23, the #DavianStrong Benefit will be held at City Park from 9am until 6pm.

The corn hole tournament will have two tiers of registration for those with different levels of age and experience. Registration is at 9:30am and 11:30am.

The family friendly event will also features a silent auction, food, vendors, kid’s crafts, live music and more.

“This is our community,” Chief Mat Briggs said.” We won’t let anyone fight their battles alone. We feel fortunate to have them here and a part of our community. We are proud to support their efforts in this battle,” he said.” It is truly heartbreaking to see this little boy suffering with a cancer that affects both of his legs. Our hearts go out to this family, which also includes a new baby. All of us here at the city are looking forward to this special event and hope that we will see you there.”
