A benefit will be held for the family of Melissa Johnson White on Nov. 18 from 6 - 11 p.m. at the Milan Community Center, 2701 1st St. E, Milan. A soup dinner will be served for a $5 donation. There will be 50/50 drawings, silent auction and raffles for both adults' and children's items, as well as music and dancing.

Melissa, a victim of a brutal homicide, was found unconscious outside of her home by her six year old son, and later died in a Peoria hospital on Oct. 22 from blunt force trauma to the head. She leaves behind two small children, ages six and four.

Please call Marni at 309-373-9086 with questions or to arrange for a donation.
