Colton Schirmer Benefit is March 2

Posted by Bryce Kendrick on February 19, 2019

A benefit for Colton Schirmer and his family will be held Saturday, March 2 from 12 noon to 5 p.m. at the Ohio County Historical Museum (212 S. Walnut St., Rising Sun, IN).

In 2017, Colton played in his first varsity football game as a freshman for Switzerland County High School.  While blocking on a kickoff return, he was involved in contact which fractured his fourth and fifth cervical vertebrae.

Colton is the son of Switzerland County’s Beth Ann Schirmer, a Rising Sun High School graduate.  He is also the grandson of Ohio County’s Eddie and Saundra Peters.

All proceeds from the benefit will help the family offset Colton’s medical expenses.  There will be soups, desserts and a silent auction.
