A number of friends and family have joined together in organizing a benefit for Dennis Wimer. Wimer was in a motorcycle accident in Owatonna in October. Since that time, Wimer has had three brain surgeries, a broken femur, a broken bone in the neck and fractured wrist. The Wimer family consists of five children ranging in age from 7-12.

The fundraiser will be used to cover children, medical and household expenses.

A beer/liquor bash will be at Reggie's Brewhouse in downtown Owatonna on Saturday, December 3, from 6-8PM. All you can drink for $10. You can also buy a Christmas ornament and enjoy a live band. There are also fundraising bracelets and t-shirts for sale. There will also be a silent auction. A larger auction is planned for February.

There will also be a fundraising breakfast for the Wimers on Sunday, December 4, at St. Mary's school from 8AM to noon.
