A Benefit Fundraiser, “All You Can Eat Pasta Dinner” is scheduled for noon to 4 p.m. Oct. 20 at the Oasis Room at Thunder Island on Wilcox Road in Granby.
The event is taking place to raise money for the Barry family, Sue, Bob and Ryan. Ryan, 12, was riding a mountain bike at camp at Casowasco when he hit a rock on the trail, lost control of the bicycle and hit a tree. Were it not for the fact that he was wearing a helmet, he probably would not have survived.
Ryan suffered a severe spinal cord injury as well as other injuries and is now in a wheelchair. The funds raised by this event will go towards a handicapped vehicle for the family.
Dinner will include all-you-can-eat pasta, salad and bread. Baked goods will be available for purchase. There will be door prizes, raffles, a 50/50 and a cash bar. Marybeth and Rob Hill will provide music. An artist will be doing face painting.
Advance sale tickets may be purchased from Theresa Broderick (592-8068), Sue Patrick (592-7449) or Jan Rebeor (593-1930). A limited number of tickets will be available at the door the day of the event and takeout will be available.
