Fundraiser Saturday for Longtime STX Resident, Source Reporter Susan Ellis

(Submitted flyer)

A fundraiser is planned Saturday for longtime St. Croix resident Susan Ellis to help with medical expenses after she was a passenger in a serious car accident last month in Florida.

Ellis, a dedicated V.I. Source reporter for more than 10 years, suffered severe injuries in the crash, including a broken pelvis, hip, clavicles, vertebrae, and ribs. She is currently recovering at a rehabilitation facility in Florida after being hospitalized for several weeks.

According to her family, the fundraiser will help with her expenses as she takes her time to heal. “It will be a long road, but she is one tough lady!” they said.

The fundraiser will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. on Saturday at Umami Sushi. It will feature music by Steve Katz and Daniel Deane, who are donating their talents, as well as a raffle and food and drink specials. Fifty percent of sales will go to Ellis’s recovery.

Umami, which specializes in fresh sushi, is located at 5 Corners in Christiansted, at 4034 La Grande Princesse Drive, Unit 3. Contact them at umamicateringstx@gmail.com or 340-718-2100.
