Friends will host a fundraiser benefit on Saturday, May 11 to help Dale Sorlie, a North Dakota Air National Guard veteran of 22 years. In the fall of 2010, he was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, which has left him unable to work, and has resulted in loss of income and extensive medical bills. The fundraiser is scheduled for 6 to 11 p.m. at the West Fargo VFW, 308 Sheyenne St. The benefit will include a silent auction, raffle, bake sale, live music by Crash DJ, Sloppy-Joe supper, and a “Ketchup in the Face” carnival style game.
