The Marcus Fire Department and the Marcettes are hosting a benefit burger supper for the Dan and Brea Erickson Family.
On June 11, Owen Daniel Erickson was born nine-weeks premature at the Methodist Hospital in Omaha. Weighing just 2 lbs-9 oz. Owen was transferred to the Children's Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit where he spent the next several weeks.
Owen is now home and doing well and this benefit will be to help cover medical and travel expenses incurred by the family.
The event will take place on Sunday Sept. 12, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., at the Marcus Fire Station. Dan is a member of the Marcus Fire Department and the family makes their home in Marcus.
A silent auction of donated goods is also in the works at this time.
The only cost is a free will donation.
