Fundraiser to Help Grieving Family
A local restaurant is stepping up to help a family who recently suffered a tragic loss. According to Jim South-wick, owner of Paisano's Italian Kitchen, there will be special fundraising dinner on September 25.
"It's a spaghetti feed from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.," he said. "All of the proceeds will go to Noel Edwards and her son, David. David's younger brother passed away re-cently, and they're undergo-ing some rough times."
Southwick said that he has known the Edwards family for some time. David Edwards has been friends with his son and works for him at Paisanos.
