Man behind the Sycamore Line Halloween and Christmas lights is fighting cancer. Benefit planned this weekend at Cedar Point.

If you've driven by the house on Sycamore Line in the fall or winter, you can thank Michael Young for the "oohs and ahhs" that you, your children, or your grandchildren made as you slowed down to look. Whether the porch was transformed into a pirate ship or the front of the house was a holiday lighting display set to music, it was Young, with a little help from his friends, who made it possible.

Young, the bow tie-wearing operations manager at the Cedar Point Marina, is fighting T-Cell Lymphoma and the boating community is rallying around him with a fundraising event.

Burgers, Brats and Bow Ties is scheduled for Saturday, August 24 from 2-6 p.m at the Cedar Point Marina Picnic Pavilion. (flyer posted above). Admission is $10.

If you are unable to attend, you can still help Michael by donating to the Benefit Account for Michael E. Young at Key Bank.
