Fundraiser will help transplant candidate

Children’s Organ Transplant Association, or COTA, for “Team Tia W.” is inviting the public to dine at Chili’s in Yukon, 901 W End Pointe Drive, on Aug. 13. Chili’s will donate up to 15 percent of sales.

Her family asked for assistance from COTA, a national charity that guides communities in raising funds for transplant-related expenses.
