A benefit dinner and silent auction will be held for Michelle Brendmoen tonight at the Valley City Eagles Club.
Earlier this year, Michelle, 33, of Valley City suffered a brain aneurysm and underwent eight brain surgeries to correct the aneurysm and keep the swelling under control.

Family says it was a long, hard fight for her to overcome and with her will power, lots of therapy and an amazing support system she is still here to enjoy another day.
The entire household income was put on hold when she fell ill. Money raised will go towards medical bills and to help out with the general cost of living.
