"It's important for people to show up," said Wilson. "I think it will boost her spirits."
And, it already has.
"I just want them to know I'm grateful for all of them, for what they're doing for me," said Dupraw.
The spaghetti dinner benefit for Dupraw will be held at American Legion Post 1618, 275 Wilson Road, beginning at noon. The event will also include a Chinese auction 50-50 drawing, raffles and live music.
Take-outs for the dinner will be available. For more information, contact Wilson at 293-8178.
Those who are unable to attend the benefit but would still like to send a donation to Dupraw may do so in care of her to 202 Church St., Redford N.Y. 12978.
