The fundraiser will feature a pulled pork meal for $7, a silent auction and a live auction at 7 p.m. that includes a pair of Chicago Cubs tickets, an Amish quilt, a gas grill, antiques, and gift certificates.

Monetary donations can be made to the Deb Larem Care Package and dropped off at the bank.
