Posted: Mar 04 2019
A benefit for Paul Helgeson, longtime owner-operator of Odin's Belmont Service, is set for Sunday, April 14, from 3 to 6:30 p.m. in the lower-level dining room of St. Mary's Catholic Church in Grand Forks.

Fundraising already has started. Paul's fundraising page is HERE; people who wish to help can donate online, download a .pdf of the benefit poster and get the address to send a donation, all to help Paul.

Helgeson was diagnosed in April 2018 with small cell lung cancer and, in addition, with a rare autoimmune disease.

The April 14 benefit will include a freewill-offering spaghetti dinner, plus a bake sale and silent auction.
