Olheiser benefit Jan. 30 at Bowler

A special benefit event is set for Mike Olheiser on Monday, Jan. 30, from 5 to 9 p.m. at The Bowler, 2630 S. Univ. Dr., Fargo.

Ohleiser suffered a moderate stroke on Dec. 8 and was hospitalized. During his stay, he suffered a second stroke and spent time in the intensive care unit, in and out of a coma, and on and off life support.

Consequently, his medical care is ongoing and building up extraordinary, unforeseen medical expenses.

Many in the community of West Fargo are familiar with Olheiser as an 18 year employee of the city.

He is a loving husband, father and grandfather, who enjoys fishing, playing bingo and spending time with his grandsons, including a five-year-old for which he is the primary caregiver.

The benefit event will feature a silent auction, bake sale and entertainment. Dinner will also be served with a free will donation.

Online donations can be made at click donate and enter gift amount next to Mike's fund. Contributions can also be made to the Michael Olheiser Benefit Fund at any Union State Bank branch location.

The Dakota Medical Foundation (DMF) Lend A Hand program will be providing up to $5,000 in matching funds.
