After his untimely passing, friends of Jeff Nylander of Negaunee have organized a benefit dinner to help his family.
Nylander passed away unexpectedly in April this year, leaving behind numerous family members.
To help offset bills and medical expenses, friends of the family will be hosting a spaghetti benefit this Saturday, June 29. The benefit will go from 2 to 6 p.m. at the Negaunee Eagles Club on Iron Street.
"To tell you the truth, he's my best friend. One of many great friends I have, but anyone would do the same for their best friend. So I would tell everybody, if you've got a best friend that's still alive, come on down here and help friends of my family," said Bruce Lawry, a friend of the Nylander family.
Tickets are $7 and can be purchased at the door.
