Angela "Bubba" Gonyo, another friend of the family, has organized a benefit this Sunday, Jan. 16, to help the Treadwells, who did not have renter's insurance at the time of the fire. A double-elimination cricket dart tournament will be held at Therapy Nightclub and Sports Lounge, 14 Margaret St., from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Registration will begin at 11 a.m., with the tournament to begin at noon.
Trophies will be awarded for first, second and third place. The cost to enter is $15 per person.
"What happened was a tragedy but it's been amazing how much the community has come together to help," said Gonyo. "They literally lost everything but haven't asked for anything. We want to do what we can to help."
That has meant more than words can say, said Mandy.
"Bubba's just amazing," she said. "We're thankful for everything everyone has done."
