A scholarship fund created in memory of a young Danbury girl who died of cancer is getting a financial boost this weekend.

 

The Annual Mackenzie Newsome Scholarship Family Fun Day is being held on Saturday.  It's named for a 4-year old who died in March after a battle with Stage 4 cancer. 

 

The day's events will honor her fighting spirit with a dinner, pumpkin painting, face painting and other activities for kids.  The scholarship will be awarded in June to a High School senior looking to enter the medical field. 

 

Tickets can be purchased at the door for $10 for $35 for a family of four.  The event Saturday at the Moose Lodge is from 3 to 8pm.

 

Donations to the scholarship fund are also being accept by mail:
