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 Fulton.
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 helmet he was wearing, 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 handicapped modifications to the Barry home and other quality of life needs.
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. Raffle items will include a Vermont Inn Weekend for two and a 50” flat screen TV.
Marybeth and Rob Hill will provide music and a local artist will be doing face painting for the children.
For advance sale tickets or information, contact 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. Takeout meals will be available.
