A friend of the mother, grandmother and 3-year-old girl who lost their possessions when fire destroyed two floors of their Fountain Glen townhouse Nov. 14 has organized a fundraiser for them Saturday Nov. 27 at Main Street Tower restaurant, 29 S. Main St., in downtown Bel Air. The fundraiser is to be held on the restaurant’s heated outdoor deck. It starts at 8 p.m. and there is an $5 cover charge that will go to benefit the family. Eric Reed and Bobby Louis organized the event for the family and created a Facebook page to promote the fundraiser. Click here to see it.
