A Love Benefit for Rob Butler was held at GoodFellas Italian Restaurant in Milton Nov. 16. Butler was seriously injured on Labor Day in a motorcycle accident on the Indian River Inlet bridge.

The benefit raised funds to help pay for Butler’s medical expenses, a prosthetic arm and school for the injured concrete worker.

Several local businesses donated items for a raffle to help raise funds along with a 50/50. Butler will be back in the Cape Region in approximately two weeks after extensive rehabilitation in Pennsylvania.
