Memorial Benefit for Mitch Sperry

3-14-06 - Some Carter County residents came together Wednesday to raise money to hone the late Mitch Sperry. They held a hamburger fry Wednesday afternoon and put the proceeds toward the American Heart Association.

The fundraiser was organized in honor of the former district attorney who died last December of a heart attack. Organizers say that the fundraiser is a good way to remember Sperry. People who provided donations also helped decided which assistant DA would kiss a pig for next week.

Donations can still be given for those who would like to see kiss the pig. Current DA Craig Ladd is one of the candidates.
