2021 Crab Crack helps raise funds for Cox family

RANGELY | The 2021 Crab Crack in Rangely had a new mission this year, to help community members challenged with an unexpected diagnosis. On May 14, 2021, the event’s volunteer bartenders Jeff Rector, Jeff LeBleu (pictured), Leanna Cox, Amy Buffington, and Scott and Melissa Dembowski donated their tips from the night. The tips and generously donated silent auction items helped raise approximately $7,000 to assist the family with living expenses while they are away from home.

Fifth-grader Isabella Cox was recently diagnosed with B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and is currently in Salt Lake City receiving treatment. Isabella’s parents are Jason and Marybel Cox. Isabella’s sister Kaitlyn and Isabella’s friends have designed shirts and are selling them in support of Isabella. Shirts can be purchased for $15, and $7 of every shirt will be donated directly to the Cox family.

You may order shirts online at: https://getyourstitchoninc.com/collections/lets-unite-for-isabella. You may also call 970-629-3745 to place your order.

Heifer Gang Clothing Co. is also selling bracelets. $3 to purchase and $2 from each purchase will be donated to the Cox family. To order, visit this link: https://heifergangclothingco.com/products/isabellastrong-wristband

A Cox Family Donation Account is also set up at the Bank of the San Juans, Account #5106.
