July 30, 2012

When there is a need, the people of central Nebraska tend to answer the call. Saturday, July 21, that opportunity presented itself, as a benefit for Randy Franzen brought well over 100 people to the event.
The benefit began with participants meeting downtown at Tiffany Theater, where organizational plans for the poker run were made prior to viewing the classic movie, “Every Which Way But Loose.” The movie was shown free, through the generosity of Stuart Fox, one of the benefit’s sponsors.
