16 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana I November 13, 1987 Benefit auction _ I I -- I I I II Communities rally in support of hospitalized St. Henry man By MARY T. ELLERT Message Staff Writer Aft auction to benefit 0 hospitalize'St. Henry man will be held Sunday, Nov. 15 at 11 a.m., in St. Henry, Ind. Proceeds will help pay for the medical expenses of Dennis Durcholz, 51, who suffered a massive stroke and heart attack over a month ago. Durcholz has no health insurance to cover the extensive hospital bills, accor- ding to auction planner, Dennis Schaeffer of Key Associates, Huntingburg. Schaeffer and Durcholz are both members of St. Henry Church. People from the sur- rounding towns of Jasper, Hun- tingburg, St. Meinrad, Ferdi- nand and Mariah Hill have join- ed St. Henry parishioners in donating a variety of items for the auction. The overwhelming show of support for the Dur- cholz family "has been really great," said Schaeffer. "A little bit of everything" will be sold at the auction, ac- cording to Schaeffer. Items to be auctioned off include hand- made quilts, automotive sup- plies, household items and fur- niture. In addition, local farmers have donated butcher hogs, turkeys and calves, he said. Durcholz has been a patient at St. Joseph's Hospital, Hun- tingburg since he suffered the stroke Sept. 28 and heart attack, less than a week later. His right side is paralyzed, and he will eventually need a heart catheterization, according to his wife, Pat. If his condition continues to improve, he will be released from the hospital at the end of the month, she said. Margaret Steckler, who has helped organize the auction, is glad so many community members have pitched in to help Durcholz -- a man usually the "first one to do something for someone else." She rattled off a list of organizations Durcholz is ac- tive in. He is the president and superintendent of the St. Henry water corporation and is involv- 'ted in the St. Vincent de Paul Society, St. Henry Community 'Club, Catholic Knights of America, community fire department and the Ferdinand American Legion -- to name just a few. Mr. and Mrs. Durcholz celebrated their 28th wedding anniversary in August.
