Students of White Dragon Martial Arts in Idetown kicked and punched all day on April 27 to collect donations from family, friends and community for the Kaskus family of Vernon. The event was held at the Northmoreland Volunteer Fire Department.
Mark Kaskus, his wife Kelly, and son Danny lost everything but the clothes on their backs in a fire that totally destroyed their mobile home on Feb. 12.
Sifu Dave Haas, of Vernon, who has been studying Martial Arts since 1998 and holds a 3rd Degree Black Belt, coordinated the fundraiser benefit event.
White Dragon Marital Arts Benefit Demo for The Kaskus Family benefit fundraiser featured demonstrations of the classical five animal Kung Fu system that encompasses the Tiger, Crane, Leopard, Snake and Monkey styles.
The benefit fundraiser was sponsored by White Dragon Martial Arts of Idetown founded by Professor Bill Lamoreaux in 1999. He was joined in teaching Martial Arts by Sifu Dave Haas and Sifu Dave Lamoreaux.
Donations can be mailed to The Kaskus Family Fund at FNCB, 23 W. Market St., Wilkes-Barre, PA, 18702.
