ST. CLOUD – The Blue Line Sports Bar and Grill hosted a spaghetti benefit for Alyssa Lommel on Sunday afternoon.

Lommel, a former St. Cloud Cathedral graduate, was found with severe hypothermia after being outside of a neighbors house for nine hours last month in bitterly cold conditions.

Even with the extreme cold in Minnesota today, hundreds came to show their support for Lommel.  Just as the benefit was getting started, people piled in to completely fill the restaurant. Esther Widor, co-owner of the Blue Line says the support was incredible to see.

“It’s just been amazing with the support, it’s a quarter after 11 and the restaurant is already full,” Widor says.

Over 180 items were on display for a silent auction, a meat raffle was also held to raise money.

Lommel has been making a slow but steady recovery since the incident, Widor adds that Lommel has been making baby steps towards recovering.

“Every day she’s making steps to getting better,” Widor says.

Those unable to attend the event can still support Lommel and her family. A foundation has been set up at Bremer Banks under her name.
