Fighting Back for Lili's Legacy

All proceeds of Fighting Back, planned for 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday in the Brookshire’s parking lot, 925 Clarksville St., will benefit Lili’s Legacy.

The Paris Fire Department, Brookshire’s and Jerry Pitcock Wrecker Service have joined forces to support Fighting Back, a Saturday event to raise funds for Lili’s Legacy.

The nonprofit association was created to honor the memory of Lisa Regan Frazier, who was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer in September 2007 and fought for six years before losing her battle to cancer that spread to her bones, lungs and brain. Lili’s Legacy provides financial support for those receiving treatment or hospice care for cancer.

All proceeds of Fighting Back, planned for 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday in the Brookshire’s parking lot, 925 Clarksville St., will benefit Lili’s Legacy.

Brisket plates will be offered for $10. Visitors will get the chance to dunk Brookshire’s managers while kids enjoy bounce houses and tours of Paris Fire Department fire trucks.
