Ben & Jerry's hosts benefit for family

Ben and Jerry's in River Park Square will host a benefit tonight to raise money for a local family.

The store's owner is working with North Central High School senior Michaela Freeman to help a local family from Finch Elementary School. Freeman hopes to raise enough money to help the family pay for Christmas presents and a holiday dinner. The benefit is part of her senior project.

Freeman went to Finch Elementary and she wanted to give back to a family in her community. The family she chose has been hit hard by the recession. Both parents are unemployed and they have two small children.

Ben & Jerry's Spokane will donate 20 percent of sales between 6 and 8 p.m. tonight to Freeman and the family from Finch Elementary School.

If you can't make it to Ben & Jerry's tonight, but would like to help, contact Michaela Freeman at (509) 455-8500.
