Coming together to help

Volunteers worked the grills in order to cook up enough hamburgers for the over 600 people who came out to show support for the Bernhardt family who lost their home, belongings and pets in a fire earlier this month.
 Friends from Tampa, Durham, Hillsboro, Marion and more hosted and participated in the hamburger fry on Wednesday, May 22 at the Tampa Senior Center in order to raise donations for the family. In addition to the meal, there was a silent auction.

For those unable to attend but want to support the Bernhardt family, there is a fund for donations set up at Central National Bank.
