On Jan. 19, we ran a story about former Santa Fe basketball player Josh Butler and his fight with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
We are happy to report that a benefit held in Butler's honor on Jan. 20 was a great success. His wife, Jennifer, said that 700 barbecue dinners were sold in less than three hours.
"We feel very loved and cared for, which is a great feeling," she said. "Although Josh's situation is challenging, it is no different than the challenges faced by countless others all over the world everyday."
If you'd like to help the cause, there is a website for electronic donations:
