Over 300 people came out Thursday for a Marzetti Dinner Fundraiser for Nicole Miller and Wendy Killian at Mansfield Christian School. 

First grader Nicole Miller suffers from a genetic disorder that left her with one kidney which has been failing her entire life.  Nicole's kindergarten teacher, Wendy Killian, is donating a kidney.

Jen Stephan, a volunteer coordinator at the school, long with Kelly Gray, Linda Hoeflich and Maria Day, helped organize the benefit.

The transplant will take place Tuesday at Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital in Cleveland.  Miller and Killian will both have six weeks of recovery.

A benefit fund has been established at all Richland Bank locations in Richland County. All donations to the fund will go to the Miller and Killian families.
