MARSHFIELD, WI (OnFocus) – Steve ’Tarbs’ Leu is a retired Marshfield Police Department officer who is battling cancer. A fundraiser is being held January 8th from 3-10:00pm at Marshfield Eagles Club, with proceeds going to support his medical bills.
“Joanie Podevals and Kobussen Bus had asked about doing a fundraiser,” said Pam Messman Voelker, event organizer at the Eagle’s Club. “I know Tarbs would have said ‘absolutely not,’ so we got permission from his wife, Becky and daughters, Maria and Julie to go ahead with this.”
After selecting the date and getting word got out, many people jumped on board and began calling to see what they can do to help.
“Anyone and everyone that knows Tarbs knows he is one hell of a man, husband, friend, father, Grandpa, brother, boss…I could keep going on,” said Voelker. “He is always willing to help if needed. If you can in any way help support Tarbs, please do.”
The fundraiser on January 8 will feature raffle baskets, a 50/50 raffle, gun and meat raffles, and more!
Bracelets are also for sale at various locations around town, including Weiler’s Convenience Stores, to benefit Tarbs.
“Let’s show Tarbs and family how much we support them and how many peoples’ lives he has touched through the years,” said Voelker. “If you can not come to the benefit, you can please pray for this family and all others fighting.”
