To the editor:
On Nov. 20, Calabash Elks Lodge No. 2679 sponsored a benefit pasta dinner for Selena Utter, who was recently injured in an auto accident. The lodge donated the dining room for that night, and I coordinated the event. Mickey Hardie of Shama Lama donated two hours of music and 108 people attended.
Several members of the Elks volunteered to serve food and defray labor costs. I thank all who volunteered, the Lodge House Committee, Lodge manager Rich Gass and especially Elks chef Rick Moore. Many local businesses sent donations. I thank them, too.
