A fundraiser is planned for Cara Dempski Friday, Sept. 13 at 5 p.m. in her hometown of Elk Mound.

Dempski has worked as the regional sports editor of the Lake Mills Leader as well as other newspapers in Southern and Northern Wisconsin and is a 1996 graduate of Elk Mound High School.

She was covering a vehicle accident in December for the paper when she suffered a massive stroke and brain bleed. Dempski is continuing to undergo rehab.

The spaghetti dinner will be held at Elk Mound High School at 5 p.m.

All the funds from the dinner will go to Cara. Those interested in donating can go to www.gofundme.com/caradempski or make donations payable to Cara Dempski, 203 University St., Elk Mound, WI 54739.
