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.

    The fundraiser information has been fixed -- it was originally going to be held elsewhere, but was moved to the Littleton Community Center. Thanks for pointing that out.

    HAS ANYONE SEEN THE POST FROM THE GALT HEARLD? This report was tastefully done in respect for the familys loss. I believe that this article could have been more respectful towards the family. As for the quotes from Cheryl Perucca this was only to show that Delia Gomez is a very giving person and as for the quotes from Angie Nixon whom was asked how the girlfriend is doing is a typical media misconstrution from the media. There was lots of misprints like the location. This event is held at the Galt Littleton Center and there is no such business as dry creek bowling.
