Two-year-old Jase Harris recently spent 10 days in Saint Francis Children’s Hospital in Tulsa where he was diagnosed with hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). Eight of those days Jase spent in the intensive care unit.

A benefit dinner for Jase and his family will take place from 5 to 8 p.m. today at the Wagoner Show Barn, across from Maple Park.

Those who would like attend are asked to contribute a financial donation of any amount. Beans or spaghetti will be served along with a drink and dessert.
