An evening of entertainment for the kids is on the schedule at a Medford retirement home tonight in an event to raise money to help the family of two brothers facing serious medical problems.

The event at Fountain Plaza Retirement Center, 1441 Morrow Road, begins at 7 p.m. Magic tricks, balloons, a cake walk and a silent auction are on the schedule. Admission is $5 per person or $15 per family.

The event is to help the family of Spencer Scofield, 12, and Brycen Scofield, 9, of Butte Falls.
Spencer collapsed April 1 at Butte Falls Elementary School, where he is a sixth-grader, and later was diagnosed with transverse myelitis, a neurological disorder caused by inflammation across the spinal cord that damages myelin, the nerve’s protective cover. Nerve damage left him paralyzed for weeks, and he was treated in Portland before returning home early this month, still without feeling in his limbs, friends and family say.

Then, on May 13, Brycen was critically burned in an all-terrain-vehicle crash while he was riding to feed animals on the family’s ranch in the 13000 block of Butte Falls Highway. He is in critical condition in a medically induced coma at the Oregon Burn Center at Legacy Emanuel, recovering from burns across his head and body, as well as in his lungs, said grandmother Ronnie Scofield of Medford.

Scofield works at Fountain Plaza.
