Auction Proceeds Help Brunswick County Family

WILMINGTON -- Kefi's Restaurant and Bar held an auction Saturday in honor of a Brunswick County family who lost everything.

All of the proceeds from the auction will go to the Bell family to help them get back on their feet.

In December 2007, the Bell's home burned down and took the lives of two of their children, and badly burned the other two who survived.

Three mothers who heard about the tragedy organized the fundraiser.  It began as selling dinner plates and turned into a silent auction and raffle.

Some of the things being auctioned were a beach house stay, dinner for four, and a charter boat ride.
