Danni was recently sent to Children’s Hospital in Dallas, where she underwent surgery so doctors could prepare her for dialysis. She’s receiving dialysis treatments now, but is still coping with high fever, according to her grandmother.
Every Saturday from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. a booth will be set up at the Farmers’ Market in downtown Sulphur Springs to sell signs, t-shirts, prayer rocks, crafts and other homemade donations in support of Danni.
On May 12, Chili’s in Sulphur Springs will hold a “give back event,” donating 10 percent of event day sales to benefit Danni Massey. Mention or show a giveback flyer for Danni Massey with each payment so the sale will be credited to the fund. Flyers can be downloaded on Sulphur Bluff Independent School District’s website, http://www.sulphurbluffisd.net, by clicking on Bear Tracks newsletter.
A softball tournament, called “Doing Work for Danni” will be held May 24 in Coleman Park in Sulphur Springs. Cost for 7/3 co-ed teams to enter is $200 a team. First and second place winners will receive t-shirts. Rules include use of 44/375 balls only, which must be provided by the team. Only three homeruns are allowed per game, or the person will either be out or have to make a $5 donation per run to benefit the fund for Danni. Homerun bracelets will be available for $20 each. Halo rule will be in effect and no picking up male players. Concessions and raffles will also be available at the tourney. Contact Jennifer Anders at 903-348-2429; leave a voice or text message if no answer.
Danni Massey has many ties to Sulphur Bluff and North Hopkins communities, thus SBISD is helping to coordinate some of the fundraising efforts. Danni is enrolled in Sulphur Bluff Independent School District, but like students in county school who require a special classroom, attends class in North Hopkins ISD, Candi’s alma mater.
She is the daughter of Candi Massey, a stay-at-home mom of four, and Jeremy Massey, an officer with Reno Police Department and former valedictorian of Sulphur Bluff High School, where his brothers also graduated.
Danni has three older brothers, Sulphur Bluff sophomore Cole; Clayton, who also attends class at North Hopkins; and SB second grader Lucas.
Danni’s maternal grandparents include Donna Argenbright and Danny Argenbright; her paternal grandparents are Ricky and Tanya Massey, a third grade teacher at SBISD who also graduated along with her siblings from SBISD. Danni’s great-grandparents include Buster and Glenda Harris. She is also the great-niece of retired Hopkins County Constable Larry Argenbright.
Anyone interested in helping with the booth at the weekly market or donating items for it should contact Kristy Harder. Additional fundraising efforts can be directed to Terri McCoy at 903-440-3582 or at SBISD cafeteria.
