  • A benefit to bring financial relief to families affected by the shooting and fire that rocked Herkimer County last week will take place Sunday.
    Proceeds from the Love and Compassion Benefit will be divided equally among eight families: the six families of Kurt Myers’ shooting victims and two families displaced by a fire set at Myers’ apartment building.
    An item drive also will benefit the Cooperstown Canine Training Center, in memory of Ape, a K-9 unit killed before police shot and killed Myers.
    There are two parts to Sunday’s event: the main benefit, which includes food, live music and a 50/50 raffle, which occurs from noon to 8 p.m. at the American Legion in Mohawk, 43 W. Main St. There is a $10 entrance fee.
    The second component is an auction at Francesca’s Banquet Hall in Ilion. Tickets for the auction will be sold from noon to 5:30 p.m. for the 6 p.m. drawing. Admission is free.
    To donate online and for information, visit envisionevent.com. To send a check donation payable to Love and Compassion Benefit, mail it to Adirondack Bank, c/o Love and Compassion Benefit, P.O. Box 590, Herkimer, NY 13350.
