BROKEN BOW—Cars lined Memorial Drive outside the Broken Bow Golf Club on Saturday night because the parking lot was packed with a crowd of people showing up in support of Cami and Talon Scott and their 10-month-old daughter Leeryck.
More than 30 teams signed up for the cornhole tournament on April 2 and dozens of generous auction items were donated to the silent auction. The Broken Bow Lions Club provided the taco/nacho bar as event attendees enjoyed the spring Saturday evening.
KCNI/KBBN spoke with parents Cami and Talon Scott who said they were overwhelmed and humbled by the turnout.
“It’s overwhelming that’s for sure,” Cami Scott said. “To say the least,” Talon added. “There’s lot of people here to support her and everything, trying to get around to everybody is a little difficult,” Cami said. “It’s humbling that’s for sure.”
Baby Leeryck Scott is the 10-month-old daughter of Talon and Cami Scott. In October Leeryck was diagnosed with White-Sutton Syndrome which according to mother Cami, is a neurological/development delay issue that affects motor skills and speech.
The Scott family has taken numerous trips to Omaha and Kearney to meet with doctors, physical and occupational therapists, and to conduct various studies and tests for Leeryck. Proceeds from the fundraiser will help the family with medical and travel expenses.
“We just can’t thank everybody enough for all the love and support and everything that the Lions Club has done with the food and my sister getting everything lined up and organized and our families for being there to support us too. All of our friends and everybody coming out to play and just supporting it,” Cami Scott said.
Talon Scott added, “I agree fully with everything she said. It’s just amazing how many gather around when events like this happen.”
Cami and Talon have three older children as well: Hesston (8), Legacee (6), and Merryck (3) who all love their baby sister.
“They’re really good. They love her and support her and that’s a good thing!” Cami told KCNI/KBBN.
