Benefit for Dale and Judy Schmidt set for Aug. 29

A pancake breakfast and silent auction is planned for Dale and Judy Schmidt.

The benefit will be held from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, August 29, at In Their Own Words Veterans Museum, West Main Street, in Perham.

Dale and Judy, along with their son Mark and his children, lost their home and all of their belongings in a house fire on June 29, 2009. Judy is also going through cancer treatments.

Money is being raised to help the family rebuild their home and obtain household items and clothing for everyone. Schwans Home Delivery products will be available to purchase at the benefit, with Schwans donating part of the proceeds to the benefit.

A fund has been set up for the family at United Community Bank in Perham. Donations may be sent to: United Community Bank, 155 2nd St. SW, Perham, MN 56573, C/O Dale & Judy Schmidt.

For any questions or if you would like to donate anything for the silent auction, call Brian at 218-298-1811.
