Yvonne and Slip Markiewicz and their supporters have teamed up for the second annual Walk for Lupus Now Sunday at Lowrey Park Zoo. Yvonne has battled lupus for six years. Publix folks raised $700 with a car wash behind the Westgate store where Slip is grocery manager. Tonight there’s also a drawing at 7:30 p.m. at Gecko’s, 4310 State Road 64 East. Proceeds go the Lupus Foundation of America.
