Fundraiser for local family set for July 20 in Plano

Laura Melcher, the wife of Kendall County Sheriff's Deputy Michael Melcher, passed away after recently being diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease called Giant Cell Myocarditis. She was being treated for liver and kidney failure while awaiting a heart transplant.

Back the Blue, a fundraiser for the family, will feature live music and raffles. Money raised will help the family.

The fundraiser is set for 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. Thursday, July 20, at The Brick Lounge, 115 E. South St. in Plano. In addition to the generous raffle baskets available, a portion of bar sales will be donated to the Melcher family.
