Benefit set for Guenther


UNION CITY, Ind. —The Leyden Guenther Benefit will be held Dec. 4 from 4 p.m. to midnight at the old American Legion behind 318 Pearl Union City, Indiana.

The all-ages event and dinner will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. Pre-sale dinner tickets are available until Nov. 13 at a cost of $10 for couples, $6 for individuals, $3 for children 6 to 12 years of age and free for those 5 and under.

The meal will be a pulled pork dinner with choice of green beans or baked beans, coleslaw, roll and non-alcoholic beverage.

A deejay will be performing from 8 to 11:30 p.m. for the adult crowd.

“BYOB,” said organizers.

The winner of the 50/50 drawing does not have to be present to win. There will also be raffle baskets and auctions.

It was also noted there will be a t-shirt sale at $10 each.

Leyden died June 12 at Children’s Medical Center, Dayton, as the result of injured incurred in a bicycle-vehicle accident that took place two days earlier. The Mississinawa Valley student would have turned 10 on Sept. 17 and would have been a fourth-grader.

He is the son of Angela Johnson and Brad Alspaugh of Union City and Anthony Guenther.

Proceeds from the event will go for medical expenses. Donations will be accepted. Checks can be made payable to Angela Johnson, Leyden’s mother.
