Hopes are high for Schreiber benefit


“He was definitely the men of all men to me,” Overbey said of her father. “I held my dad up on a very high pedestal. … He was an awesome person.”

The live band Saturday, Isolated Incident, will play from 1 to 3 p.m. The silent auction will last from around noon to 4:30 p.m. Auction items, which were donated from local businesses, will include knife sets, window cleaners, automotive supplies, gift certificates, sporting event tickets, and more.

There were also be several big-ticket items for the raffle drawings, including a large Craftsman toolbox and a $150 gift certificate to Once Upon a Lifetime Photography.

Dee Schreiber said she will serve hamburgers, hot dogs, baked beans, potato salad, and chips Saturday at no charge. However, there will be a donation jar available for contributions.

Family members do not have a specific fundraising goal in mind, but are optimistic about the benefit. Donating to the American Lung Association is a very important part of this effort so that other people in need can be helped, Overbey said.

“We want to give back to someone else also,” Overbey said.

David and Dee Schreiber have one child together – Davina Overbey. However, Dee also has two children from a previous marriage – Tammy Melvin of Du Quoin and Artie Highfill of Mt. Vernon.

For more information on the benefit, contact Dee at 231-4207, Davina at 237-3203, or Tammy at 790-4129.
