Dolan benefit set for April 16

There will be a spaghetti feed benefit in honor of Tristen Lee Dolan Friday, April 16, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at St. Paul's Lutheran Church and School in Perham.

Dolan died as a result of an automobile accident Nov. 9, 2009. Her co-workers at Perham Memorial Home Care, along with family and friends from the Perham community, have created a trust fund to assist other families who experience unexpected tragedies. Proceeds from the event will be divided between the memorial trust fund and a trust fund for Dolan's children's education and childcare expenses.

Activities include a silent auction, door prizes, bake and craft sales and bake walk. There will also be a live auction by Bachmann Auctioneers.

Donations can be made to the Dolan Family Trust Fund or the Tristen Lee Dolan Memorial Trust Fund at United Community Banks in Perham or Frazee.

Matching funds have been applied for through Thrivent Financial for Lutherans and Catholic Aid Society.

Items for the benefit can be dropped off at the Perham Memorial Home Care office.

Contact Louise Tower, 346-5917, with questions.

Dolan is survived by her husband Patrick and children Austin (7), Mason (4), Joshua (2) and Sienna (5 months).
