Fundraiser for Ryan Diviney

In 2009, Ashburn resident and West Virginia University student, Ryan Diviney was attacked so viciously by other young men that he was left in a coma.  The reason for the senseless beating:  Allegedly, a remark he made regarding the World Series.  Ashburn Village is holding a community-wide yard sale with all proceeds going to Diviney's medical treatment. The event will be held April 9th, 2011 from 8 am to 3 p.m at the Ashburn Village Lakes Community Center. There will be entertainment, food, and an appearance by the host of the decluttering show, "Enough Already," Peter Walsh.  Please support the Diviney family and attend this fundraiser.
