An unknown infection caused total paralysis below Michael’s waist, leaving him in intensive care and unable to return to work. Michael is the husband of Amy and father to two children, Tanner and Alexa, students at Tri-Valley High School.
“The community has really come together very quickly to help out Mike and Amy and the kids.” states Christy Leiter, longtime friend of the Wolfgang family. “We have been receiving generous donations from friends and strangers alike. The school district and many local businesses and organizations have already donated some wonderful prizes for the auction despite the short amount of time we’ve had to prepare. I know Mike and Amy are so grateful to live in a community that really cares. He has a long road to recovery and he’s been working so hard every day to get better. Knowing so many people are pitching in to help is an immense relief to Mike and his family. ”
Donations are still being collected. Individuals and businesses interested in donating to the auction can contact Leiter at 570-985-7240. An event, Chinese Auction to Benefit Michael Wolfgang, has been created on Facebook with additional details about prizes. Fliers have been distributed around the community. Refreshments will be served at the auction which also features a 50/50 raffle and a large prize table.
