“Living with Lupus Weekend 2023,” organized by Rachelle Roy, helped raise awareness and funds for a worthy cause. The weekend activities were dedicated to her lupus sister, Schatzia Depp who passed in March 2023.

The weekend included a Friday night party with a purpose called, ‘You Can’t Break Her Soul’. Attendees were asked to donate a wig and enjoy an evening of fun and fellowship. Saturday featured a wig giveaway at Mott Branch Library and bowling social at All Strikes Lanes. Sunday closed out the weekend with the Lupus Walk at Ottawa Park.

“We’re still raising funds for Lupus because Friday’s turnout was low due to the rain. I ended up purchasing some wigs that were donated on Saturday. We had a great turn out on Saturday, six ladies attended and 30 wigs in total were donated. It’s honestly not about the money, but about changing how the people feel about themselves,” shared Rachelle Roy.

Seaway Market Place of Toledo has partnered with this cause for the past three years. The grocery store is located at 1707 Cherry Street in Toledo.

“Seaway is one of our biggest supporters as a sponsor. I am grateful for the three years that Seaway has agreed to be a sponsor,” shared Rachelle Roy.
