Harley Rhodes benefit set for Saturday


There will be a cookie jar benefit auction held in support of Harley Rhodes at the VFW on Saturday, April 8 at 5:30 p.m.

Rhodes is suffering from stage 2 osteosarcoma cancer in his left leg. Proceeds for the auction will help pay for his medical expenses. Rhodes’ doctors are saying he will undergo six weeks of radiation and 10 weeks of chemotherapy with potential operations.

He is the son of residents Ross and Dorothy Rhodes and the brother of Elizabeth Rhodes. Rhodes graduated from Hot Springs County High School in 2014 and currently attends Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma, studying strategic communications,

“Harley is grown so much over the years,” Vern Lofink said. “I have followed Harley since he was able to sell livestock at the local county fair. It’s always sad to see a someone especially so young to go through something like this.”

Rhodes was involved in multiple activities while living in Thermopolis, such as 4-H, FFA, student government and athletics. He represented the high school while attending the National FFA Convention in 2011 and 2012 while singing as part of their nation chorus.

Auctioneers will be John Gerrels, John Holmes and Vern Lofink with Sonja Holmes and Keith and Pam Kerr serving as clerks for the event.
