Bob's Diner to host benefit for hurricane victims

| Monday, Nov. 12, 2012, 12:08 a.m.

A local diner has organized a special event to help victims of Hurricane Sandy.

A fundraising dinner at Bob's Diner locations in Carnegie, Kennedy and Imperial is planned for 4 to 7 p.m. Nov. 25. Customers can choose from either a spaghetti or roast beef dinner.

Ticket price is $10. There also will be a raffle to win breakfast for a year at Bob's Diner, owner Bob Marshall said. Raffle tickets are $5.

Marshall's wife, Dane, lived on Third Avenue in Carnegie with her parents, Jack and Mary Lou Frey, when the remnants of Hurricane Ivan ravaged the borough in 2004. Marshall grew up in Carnegie.

“I think if there is any town that understands what New Jersey and New York are going through, it's Carnegie. That's why we want to help,” Dane Marshall said.

The diner hopes to raise $5,000, the Marshalls said.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
