A bake and rummage sale is planned for 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at NorthSound Physical Therapy, 27500 102nd Ave. NW, Stanwood, to benefit Troy Osborn, a Lake Goodwin resident fighting cancer.

Because of his illness, Troy is unable to work at his normal job in quality control for Rinker Materials in Everett, and his short-term disability insurance will end soon.

Anyone who would like to donate items for the rummage sale is asked to bring them to NorthSound today.

Tickets are $12 at the door, and proceeds will go to scholarships for the dancers.
