A note from the Lockie family

Last night’s dinner and silent auction was simply incredible.  All we can say is thank you.  Thank you for caring about a little boy many of you have never even met.  Thank you for giving so generously.  Jonathan may have been born with a half a heart, but he certainly has the most supportive community of family and friends, here in Ankeny but also across the state and country.

Our family is so blessed.

Kyle, Sara, James, and Jonathan

Details and directions

The fun begins 5pm Friday night at the Ankeny High School Cafeteria, 1155 SW Cherry Street.  A plate including BBQ pork sandwich, baked beans, potato salad, chips, drink, and dessert is $6.  Kids 3 and under eat free.  Feel free to arrive whenever it works best for you; food begins at 5pm and continues until it’s gone.  The silent auction also begins at 5pm and ends between 7 and 8pm depending on the item.  Jonathan’s bracelets will be available for $2, and quilt raffle tickets are available for $2 each or 3 for $5.

Directions for those traveling from northern Iowa:

  • From I-35 take the 1st Street exit toward Ankeny.
  • Turn left onto Delaware Ave.
  • At the first stoplight, turn right onto Magazine Road.
  • Stay on Magazine for quite a while.  Go straight through the stoplight for Ankeny Blvd.  You will see the high school to the right.
  • Although there is parking on all sides of the building, park on the WEST side.  Enter through the main doors near the flagpole.  This is the same door people will enter to attend the Waukee vs. Ankeny game that evening.  We will have volunteers with red shirts inside the door to point the way to the cafeteria.
