Help for Tina

Daily Photo Galleries

Tina Slomkoski is an admired woman in our community. She has held multiple fundraisers for charity, including yearly pig roasts. These pig roasts, held on her property in Harrison, have been very successful.

Tina worked as a bartender, sold candles and cleaned houses for a living.

Tina's trailer burned late last month. She had only seconds to escape out a window. She was badly burned and remains hospitalized.

In addition to her beloved cats, she lost everything she owned. Tina could not afford insurance.

Only two things can turn her story into a positive one — that she is alive and to see how the community has come together for her.

After years of helping others, Tina will benefit from this year's pig roast. It will be held at the Frazier Township fire hall on Sept. 7. Tickets can be purchased at Boots in Brackenridge or at the door. For more information, please call Tracy at 724-351-0200.

Every dollar from the community will help put Tina back on her feet. An account has been set up at First Niagara, so donations can be dropped off or sent to any branch, with a check made out to “Tina Slomkoski.”
