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.
