Friends will hold a benefit fundraiser Dec. 1 for a Moon Area High School teacher who was severely injured in car crash last month.

Josh Prigorac, 27, of New Castle injured his head when his car slammed into the rear of a tractor-trailer on Interstate 376 in Lawrence County on Oct. 24, state police said. Prigorac started as a special education teacher for the district in August.

A spaghetti dinner will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Independence fire hall on School Road in Beaver County. The event will include entertainment and a Chinese auction. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children 10 and under. Children 2 and under can eat for free. For additional information, call 724-513-1016 or email for tickets, which also can be purchased at the door.

Donations are being accepted at Clearview Federal Credit Union branches. Checks can be made out to the Josh Prigorac Fund.
