13th Annual Heather Treat Memorial “Duck Drop”

Sunday May 5, 2019

12 pm – 5 pm

At the City Park

The Village of Goreville is proud to once again Host this annual event. 

The Heather Treat Memorial was started in 1994 after the death of Heather Harper-Treat. Heather had Colon Cancer that spread to her lungs and brain.

After Heather’s death friends and love ones decided, to start the Memorial Fund to help others who have cancer in Johnson County. 

There is another popular Cancer Fund that has followed our idea, but they only help with medical bills. We are so very fortunate that so many have donated to the fund to help those who need a little gift of love.
For more information Please contact Robin Harper-Whitehead at 618-967-9528 
Vendors please call 618-922-6767

The Heather Treat Memorial is a 501C and do not receive any funds from any cancer society or organization
