Elkridge: Bistro fundraiser to help defer family’s cancer costs

Holly Thornton is an Elkridge resident who needs our help. She is the mother of two teenage boys — Jayden, 14, and Jordyn, 12 — and has been diagnosed with stage 3 invasive lobular carcinoma, a type of breast cancer. She is working closely with the Cancer Center at St. Agnes for ongoing treatment.

Monday, Jan. 20, has been designated as Community Event Day. Tino’s Italian Bistro, at 8775 Centre Park Drive, Columbia, will donate a percentage of each meal sold during lunch and dinner to the Thorntons to help defray the mounting cost of medical services. There will be a 50/50 raffle and other raffles from 6 to 8 p.m. It is recommended that you call 410-730-8466 for reservations. Come on Elkridge, show your support and join us at Tino’s for a delicious meal and to help a neighbor in need.

We have a new bus shelter in Elkridge that is not only functional but beautiful as it incorporates mosaic art and a Little Free Library. The bus shelter serves one of the busiest stops on Route One — Port Capital Drive/Montevideo Road.

Every two years, the Horizon Foundation and the United Way of Central Maryland awards grants to those with ideas that provide an innovative approach to addressing a community need. Erin Cassell, an Elkridge resident and small-business owner in Columbia, submitted a winning proposal for the new bus shelter. She collaborated with local developer, Mark L. Levy, the Howard County Transportation Department, a local mosaic artist and students from the Maryland International School in Elkridge on the mosaic and the Little Free Library. Make it a point to drive by and see this awesome bus shelter.

Congratulations to hometown gal Kristi Williams Allison, her husband, Kyle and firstborn son, Nolan, on the arrival of their son and brother, Gavin. The little guy arrived right before Christmas, which certainly brought a lot of joy to grandparents Jeff and Susan Williams.

The Elkridge Volunteer Fire Department’s Wednesday Evening Bingo continues every Wednesday for the rest of the winter months. This is the perfect way to take a midweek break, catch up with friends and support the fabulous EVFD. See you at Bingo.

If you want to learn about some Elkridge history and have a fun evening out, don’t miss the presentation of “Little Poland” on Tuesday, Feb. 11, at the Brumbaugh House, 5825 Main St.

Many Polish families immigrated to Elkridge and became a living, happy and close-knit community. You will hear stories from family members and friends about Elkridge’s Little Poland community. The program starts at 7 p.m. and ends at 9 p.m. You will not want to miss this program sponsored by the Elkridge Heritage Society.
