Written By: Tanja Rekhi
BIG FLATS (WENY) -- Back in November, Chris Wiehe, his wife, and three children lost everything-- from belongings to four beloved pets when their house went up in flames.
Now, the community is coming together to help them get closer to rebuilding again. They're hosting a spaghetti dinner at the America Legion in Big Flats this Saturday, starting at 1:00 p.m.
It's $10 dollars for adults, $5 for people ages 6 to 17, and kids younger are free. There will also be a Chinese raffle.
Chris' friend, Johnny Horton helped set up the fundraiser.
"He's a good guy and his family's great. They lost everything in a house fire," said Horton, "It's me giving back to him and everybody else in the community that's been right there to help them and it's something that we all like to do."
