The annual Brandon Sorrell Memorial Scholarship Foundation Benefit Dinner raises money both for scholarships given out each year in the Peru teen's name and for the pedestrian-safety project his mother, Christol Mastic, is so committed to.

This year, set for 2 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, it takes place at Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 309 in Peru.

That location is perfect, Mastic said, as it allows the dinner to support veterans, too. And, as in the past, diners are invited to bring along a nonperishable item for the food shelf in Peru.

The dinner, spaghetti, salad, Texas Roadhouse rolls, and dessert, is $6 adults, $4 ages 5 through 10, and free for age 4 and younger. An auction offers items donated by businesses throughout the area, including Titus Mountain lift passes, a Cabot Cheese basket, a gift-card wreath and Lotto Christmas tree.

Corporate sponsors are Lake Placid Oral Surgery, CeraGraphics, Mountain Brook Lodge, High Peaks Dental, Santa's Workshop, DJ Flash and Flat & Vertical Concrete. To learn more, ask for a safety presentation, donate to the auction or volunteer, email Mastic at
