Tom Anglea is the principal of Worthington Christian High School, which is affiliated with the Grace Brethren Church of Worthington (Polaris), Ohio (Mike Yoder, pastor). Anglea is battling stage IV brain cancer.
This past Thursday night more than 600 people gathered to honor Tom and Lisa Anglea and all they have meant to many people at Grace Polaris Church and Worthington Christian Schools over the years.
As of Saturday, more than $92,000 was raised, all of it to go directly to the Tom Anglea Fund to help defray expenses associated with Tom’s illness. The “Night With Angleas” benefit was held at the Villa Milano in the 1600 block of Schrock Road in Westerville. An anonymous donor committed to match all contributions up to $25,000.
A commemorative scrapbook is also being created for the Anglea family, with notes, funny remembrances, wonderful time shared with Tom, a Bible verse, or photo to be included.
