PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” So many turn to music to help lift their spirits when theyâ€™re having a rough day. So, when a student from the Punxsutawney Area Middle School, Colin Wineberg, â€¨fell ill, several local musicians decided to put their talents to use raising money to help Winebergâ€™s cause.
Event organizer Mike Krach, a music teacher in the Punxsutawney Area School District, said Colin is a 7th-grade student in the district who is in need of a kidney transplant. When Wineberg fell ill this past summer rather suddenly, Krach said a chronic kidney disease was discovered.
