A month after a car wreck killed a 19-year-old Galt man and
badly injured his girlfriend and two younger sisters, family
friends have rallied the entire community for a fundraiser.
The Sunday spaghetti dinner will help pay for Victor Martinez's
burial expenses and medical bills for his sisters. But the
fundraiser doesn't stop at dinner. Countless businesses have
offered raffle items, ranging from Kirkwood ski lift tickets, to
wine, to tickets for the wax museum in San Francisco.
