A benefit for a local youngster battling leukemia is planned for Jan. 10.

A catered dinner will accompany the musical “Frog and Toad,” performed by students from Michelle’s Studio of Dance. The event takes place at the White River High School theater, 26928 120th St. E.

The dinner, catered by Mama Stortini’s, will include pasta selections, vegetables and bread; drinks will be sold separately.

Tickets are being sold at the dance studio between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. through Friday , from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday and from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Jan. 5. Tickets also can be purchased online by visiting ticketsales@msodance.com. The cost is $5 for the show. Dinner is $15 for those 11 and older; $10 for kids 6 to 11; and $5 for those 5 and younger.

Dinner will be served at 4 p.m., the musical begins at 5 and a second dinner session will be offered after the show.

Proceeds will benefit the Yantzer family, whose son Matthew has leukemia.

Matthew was a student at Mountain View Middle School, but has had to withdraw from school while battling his disease.

His mother Lynn reported that Matthew received a bone marrow transplant, with the donation coming from his younger sister, and is doing well despite periodic setbacks.

“All in all, everything went well,” Lynn Yantzer said, noting that her son is hoping to return to school for the fall 2009 term.
