A benefit to help victims of the 4th Street restaurant fire last month in La Crosse is scheduled for this Sunday.
The event begins at 2 p.m. at the Popcorn Tavern and the Bridges United Methodist Church, both up the block from where the India Curry House burned down on April 28th.
Chris Stolpa, one of the organizers of the benefit, and knows some of the people who were left homeless by the building fire, which includes business owners.
“This is a great thing that we can all get together in a small, short amount of time,” Stolpa says, “and the only thing we can do is continue forward and help each other.”
Sponsors of the benefit will provide food. A silent auction is planned, and severalAll of the proceeds will go to the people who lived above the restaurant, who were left homeless by the fire.
Other businesses close to the restaurant were condemned, at least temporarily, because of smoke or water damage.
