COOS BAY — Joe Benetti and former staff members will join together Saturday, March 17, to cook and serve a dinner for a good cause.
Benetti’s famous minestrone, salad, bread and lasagna will be on the menu at the dinner, which will be held from 5 to 9 p.m. at The Mill Casino-Hotel, 3201 Tremont St., North Bend. All proceeds from the dinner and silent and live auctions will benefit Coos Bay resident Jon Grove, in his pursuit of special treatment in his battle against multiple sclerosis.
“The Benetti’s family is reuniting to raise money for one of its own,” Joe Benetti said. “Jon’s spouse, Chaukae, grew up at Benetti’s and is known and loved by so many. When we were approached about doing a Benetti’s dinner fundraiser for Jon, of course we said yes.
“It’s been incredible – but not surprising – to see so many of our former staff jump in to volunteer their time and efforts to prepare the food,” Benetti added.
Tickets are $40 per person or a table for 8 for $300, and can be purchased through KoKwel Gifts at The Mill, 541-756-8800, or online at www.jotform.us. More information can be obtained by calling Chaukae Donley, 541-404-1574; or Amy Bailey at 541-252-5788.
