ST. CLOUD -- A memorial fundraiser will be held on Sunday to celebrate the life of the student who was killed in a plane crash in Sauk Rapids last summer.

Alexander Voigt, a 16-year-old foreign exchange student from Germany, and 60-year-old pilot Scott Olson died after their plane crashed into a Sauk Rapids house last June.

The Celebrating Alexander event will take place at Michael's Restaurant and feature an authentic German meal.

Any and all donations will be accepted with the money going towards a memorial bench honoring Voigt that will be placed along the Mississippi River this summer.

The benefit will run from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Sunday at Michael's Restaurant (510 Highway 10 South in St. Cloud).
