ALBION – There are 80 items up for raffle today at Dubby’s Tailgate on Platt Street in Albion as part of a benefit for Sean and Nicole Van Winkle Paul. They couple is known locally as the leaders of Frosty and Friends, a group that supports many community causes.

They were seriously injured in a motorcycle accident May 6 in Oakfield. Nicole recently moved out of the intensive care unit but has a long road to recovery, said Christine Nenni, one of the organziers of today’s benefit. Sean broke his ribs, an elbow and sustained other injuries in the crash.

Nenni, one of the owners of Best of Tymes Party Rentals, has teamed with the Pauls on several events to benefit local children.
