A memorial benefit will be held Oct. 16 for Grand Forks' Rob Hanson, who died at age 58 in late August while awaiting suitable donor organs for a heart and kidney transplant.

Proceeds from the Oct. 18 benefit at East Grand Forks (Minn.) Eagles facility will go toward paying considerable medical, medical travel and funeral expenses for Hanson, a married father of three adult children.
