$10,000 raised for transplant patient

About $10,000 was raised at a June 5 benefit pancake breakfast for an Ellicott City boy who underwent a heart transplant last year.

The money will be used to help Andrew Miller and his parents pay for medical costs that their insurance does not cover.

But the amount raised at the Andrew R. Miller Benefit Pancake Breakfast fell far below expectations. Organizers had hoped to raise about $30,000 and had expected about 1,000 people to attend the event.

About 600 people attended the June 5 breakfast, which was organized by neighbors Peggy Miller and Judie Wallace. Peggy Miller is not related to Andrew or his parents.

Rainy weather and family vacations kept many people away, said Judi Miller, Andrew's mother.

She said she still considered the fund-raiser successful.
