A couple of events this month will help raise funds for causes that can benefit Brighton residents.  Tonight is the 12th annual Southwestern School Foundation for Educational Excellence Dinner and Auction.  It’s being held at The Commons at Lewis & Clark Community College at 6pm.

John Bramley, Parks & Safety Committee Member, says tickets are $25 per person and go toward helping high school students.
