A benefit spaghetti dinner will be held this evening to aid a local family whose home was destroyed in a late-night fire last week.
The dinner will be held from 4 to 6:30 p.m. at Whitehall Elks Lodge 1491 on North Williams Street.
Besides spaghetti, the menu will include meatballs, salad, garlic bread and dessert.
The cost is $8.
The dinner is being organized by the Whitehall High School basketball boosters and the Elks Lodge.
Trajan Artt, a student-athlete at Whitehall, was one of five people that lived at the County Route 21 home, which was destroyed by a fire on Jan. 20. Although Artt and his family were uninjured in the fire, all their belongings were destroyed.
