A major local fundraising event is in the plans for June. Megan’s Legacy Night will take place at the Des Moines Menace soccer match on Saturday, June 29, at 7:30 p.m. Megan Hoogeveen was a 2011 PC graduate who died of HLH, a rare disease of the immune system, just 5 weeks after graduating. Megan’s father Mike Hoogeveen tells KNIA/KRLS News that lives can be saved if more doctors and the general public know more about the disease. 100% percent of the ticket sales will go toward funding HLH research and education. Tickets are $5. Contact Mike Hoogeveen at 780-7043 or mike@meganslegacy.org for details.
