Fundraiser for family of Navy Rose Giroux postponed due to weather

MINOT, N.D. – A fundraiser scheduled this weekend for a Minot-area family that lost their infant girl to a genetic condition will have to be postponed due to the inclement weather.

A benefit was planned Saturday at the Landing Bar & Bottle Shop for the family of Navy Rose Giroux, who passed away last month after being diagnosed with Trisomy 13.

Those diagnosed with Trisomy 13 have an extra 13th chromosome, which leads to physical and intellectual disabilities.

Organizers tell Your News Leader they plan to reschedule the event, and we will follow up with them to inform the public of the new date, time, and location.
