If you have not already heard, our buddy and pal John Crossin has been silently battling Lewy Body Dementia for a number of months now, he has possibly had the debilitating disease for years.
The roller coaster of this battle has taken its toll on him and his nearest.
In attempt to ensure the best possible care for John, his mates are organising an event on November 17 to raise funds to provide him with the very best, local care.
John has been a pillar of the community for decades raising money for local causes and getting involved in everything Mornington. Now is the time to give something back to John.
A Majic Day for John Crossin (dubbed the unofficial Mayor of Mornington) is at Mornington Football Ground Clubrooms from 1-6pm on Sunday November 17.
The day will consist of at least five amazing local bands, food trucks, silent auctions, major auction and raffles.
Confirmed bands at time of printing are: Two Phase, Mamas Mountain Jug Band, Dave McMillan and Andrew Farrell, The Distance and Cocker Happy. The music will start around 1.30pm .
How can you assist?
