Town holds benefit

BEDIAS — The residents of the city of Bedias will come together March 16 at the Bedias Civic Center Starts to host a benefit for a local family that lost everything in a fire.

The event starts at 8 a.m. and will end after an auction is over and food is gone.

There will be $10 barbecue plates for sale, $3 sausage wraps, $1 desserts, in addition to a silent auction, a garage sale beginning at 8 a.m., a live auction at 2 p.m., a photo booth, games, and face painting. Door prizes will be given every hour.
