A benefit for Jesse Kuechenmeister and his family will take place Saturday in Hadley.
The event will be hosted at 150 Main Street South. There will be a silent auction as well as a bean bag tournament; cost is $40 per team. Appetizers will be served from noon to 2 p.m. while they last, and a main meal is scheduled for 5 p.m.
The benefit has been coordinated to help offset medical expenses being incurred by the Kuechenmeisters after Jesse suffered severe burns in a Nov. 7 accident with an accelerant for his backyard fire pit. Among the items to be auctioned off at the benefit will be a South African safari for up to six hunters valued at $15,000.
