Benefit for Dutchie’s Sunday

T he local community will pull together Sunday, April 10, for a fund-raiser to benefit Will Kuban and Eric Swanson, owners of “Dutchie’s General Store of West Pawlet.
The historic building, and an adjacent building, were destroyed by a fire that killed local resident Gary Cary late  last month.
The event will be held beginning at 2 p.m. at the West Pawlet Volunteer Fire Department.
The fund-raiser will feature a dinner buffet with a pig roast and barbeque chicken (adults $10, children age 5-12 $5, children 4 and under free), live music by popular local band Gold Town, and a silent auction with items donated from throughout the community.
Tickets for the dinner may be purchased in advance at Mach’s Brick Oven Pizzeria as well as other local businesses, or the day of the event at the fire department.
The auction and music are free and open to the public and residents from throughout the area are invited to attend.
West Pawlet resident Katrina Farrell is coordinating the event. “We’re getting people calling from all over wanting to help.”
In addition, donations to benefit the two store owners  may be made online at the website pawletvermont.com.
“We’ve been swamped with thousands of hits to the website, all people wanting to support Will and Eric,” Pawlet website administrator and owner Stephen Schaub said.
Kuban and Swanson were sleeping in the apartment above the store, but they were able to get out safely.
Two of their three dogs were killed.
For more information or to contribute prizes or money toward the fund-raising event please contact Farrell at 802-645-0613.
