An evening out is a pleasant experience for most people, but area residents have an opportunity to enjoy such an event while supporting a worthy cause.
The event is called "Dining for Dex" and is a benefit for Dexter McDade, the not-quite-one-month-old child of Jerred and Alexis McDade of Tull. The baby currently is hospitalized at Arkansas Children's Hospital.
Friends of the family have planned a benefit pasta dinner to assist the family with the overwhelming costs of Dexter's medical bills.
