Balloon launch to follow memorial for Christofferson

Published on Friday, May 25, 2012

A balloon launch is planned for 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 29 after the memorial drop-in for Stan Christofferson who died last Friday.

The 100 yellow balloons, sold for $1, will be launched at City Park. Money raised from the balloon launch and memorial donations to the “Stand Up For Stan” fund, in lieu of flowers, will help with medical bills for Christofferson as well as other families that are struggling with cancer.

A memorial drop-in is Tuesday from 5-7 p.m. at Grace Hall at 108 Trade Street.

Christofferson, owner of the Great Bay Oyster House, died last Friday night after over a yearlong battle with cancer. He was 54. He was diagnosed with bladder and lung cancer.

Christofferson told family members he preferred people to enjoy dining at the Greer Station restaurants and support them the day of the memorial service.
