The North Bend Moose Club, 108 North Sydney St., is hosting a benefit dinner and auction, 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23, for Norma and AP Smith.
Longtime area residents, the Smiths have had a difficult year with health problems, and AP is still recovering from emergency surgery at a transitional care facility. If you have ever been to El Caporal Mexican restaurant, Norma has probably served you and AP is self-employed logging and splitting wood.
The fundraiser beings with a Mexican dinner of chicken enchiladas. The silent auction also starts at 6 p.m. and the live auction follows at 7:30 p.m., with live music afterward. Cost for the dinner is $10 per person.
Donations of auction items are being sought. Bring donations to the Moose by noon before the event. Monetary donations are accepted at Sterling Savings, to the Norma and AP Smith account.
For more information, contact Marlene Forslin at (425) 888-9504 or Cheryl Weber at (425) 888-4851.
