Food bank to hold fundraiser for volunteer who lost home in fire

Neighbors: Bischoff FISH Food Bank will serve spaghetti dinner to help family of eight

of the GatewayJanuary 29, 2014 

Volunteers at the Key Peninsula Bischoff FISH Food Bank are rallying to support one of their own.

Robert Evans, known around the food bank as “Bo,” lost his home in a house fire. He has six children, all of whom made it out of the house.

Evans is retired from the military, said Kimberly Miller, a fellow volunteer. He spends time every Saturday at the food bank. He and his wife have six children — five girls and a 2-year-old boy, Miller said.

To help Evans with expenses, the volunteers will hold a fundraiser at the Key Peninsula Lutheran Church on Feb. 16.

The $5 dinner will feature spaghetti, a drink, salad and garlic bread. It will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. at the church, 4213 Lackey Road KPN, Lakebay.
