Annual Berks Co. benefit helps local children battling cancer | Homepage Top Stories

A Berks County fundraiser benefits a charity that helps local children battling cancer.

Held every October, the Red Corner Benefit took place on Saturday in Douglassvile, Union Township.

Due to the pandemic, the event was watered down this year.

There was a lot of music, but this time no games or activities for children.

Each year, a new child is chosen with the help of all of RCB’s previous host families, friends and organizers.

The 2021 Red Corner Benefit was dedicated to 2-year-old Ellie Makarevitz. Ellie was born with a tumor on her tailbone.
