Back To Front Page

On April 1, 2013, Andrew Fant was riding his bike to class on campus at Purdue University, West Lafayette, Ind., when he struck the side of a bus. He was taken to St. Elizabeth East campus in critical condition.

Andrew is 21 years old, a 2010 graduate of Chesterton High School and a resident of Jackson Township.

His parents, Jim and Lynda, and siblings, Cate and Kurt have been with him around the clock since he was hospitalized. Andrew likely has a long recovery ahead of him.

The Chesterton Alpha Rho Chapter of Delta Theta Tau Sorority has established a way for members of the community, near and far, to help raise money for Andrew’s care.

Fundraiser raffle tickets can be purchased for $5.00 at the following locations: Popolano’s, at 225 S Calumet Rd., Chesterton; Computer Education Institute, 100 U.S. 20, Chesterton; or by calling 219-926-5740.

Tickets are on sale until May 17, 2013 and the drawing will be held on May 19, 2013. Winner need not be present to win.

All of the proceeds from this benefit raffle will be donated to the Fant family for Andrew’s care.
