Friends and family of Isavra Basargin, 16, are holding bake sales on Saturday to purchase a $60,000 handicap-accessible van. The bake sales will be held at multiple sites in the area, including Farmers Market and Kachemak Gear Shed. Available to purchase separately or packaged as a meal will be fish and meat piroshkis, filled crepes, cranberry dessert and Russian mecada, a Russian pancake with filling between the pancakes.
The Kachemak Selo teenager was injured in December while diving into a hotel swimming pool during a family trip to Anchorage.
Donations also can be made to the “Bridges Basargin Family Fund” at any Wells Fargo location. For more information about the bake sale or how to help, call 235-1489 or 299-4080.
