TURLOCK — After far exceeding her fundraising expectations last year, Turlock’s McKenzie Bronken is holding another event to raise money for diabetes research.
The 11-year-old will have a drive-through dinner Sept. 27 at Neto’s Catering in Turlock. All funds will go to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. McKenzie was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at age 6.
In October, McKenzie shattered her $1,000 goal for the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes by raising $6,518.
Tickets to her new fundraiser are $15 and include tri-tip, chicken, beans, salad and a roll. The event will be from 4 to 8 p.m. at Neto’s, 1318 N Golden State Blvd.
