Spaghetti dinner benefits local boy

Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2012, 8:53 p.m.

Ben Adams, 3, of Gibsonia, was born with cataracts and a rare brain malformation called polymicrogyria, which has caused developmental delays, but through therapy and conductive education classes, he has made strides that his family and doctors are surprised to see.

The Adams family plans to raise funds to continue to send Ben to the classes through the second Blessings for Benjamin Spaghetti Dinner Benefit on Sunday, Nov. 18, from 1 to 5 p.m. at St. Victor Church, 527 Bairdford Road.

The event will feature pasta and dessert, auctions, raffles and prizes. Tickets cost $10. Children ages 2 and younger eat for free.

To purchase tickets in advance or for more information contact 412-720-4540 or www.blessingsfor
