Benefit dinner, auction set for Sequim family

A benefit dinner and silent auction is scheduled for 5-7 p.m. Friday, June 25, at the Sequim Elks Lodge, 143 Port Williams Road. The event is to raise funds for the family of Chris Lelle, a pump truck driver for Bill’s Plumbing & Sanikan, who was recently hospitalized and is in a medically-induced coma.

Tickets are $8 and include spaghetti, salad, bread and dessert.

Lelle, a Bill’s Plumbing & Sanikan employee for the past three-plus years, is also a volunteer in the Sequim community, with groups such as Sequim Little League, Wolfpack and Sequim High FFA.

Auction items include loads of crushed rock, toilet, faucet, gift baskets, a custom cake, specialty cupcakes, a bouncy house plus concessions for a day, and more.
