Memorial event aims to educate

A concert, raffle and silent auction this Saturday will raise awareness of amoebic meningitis, a brain infection linked to the deaths of two Forest Lake-area children in recent years. The fundraiser for the organization Swim Above Water is being held in memory of Jack Ariola Erenberg and Hailee LaMeyer. Both died from amoebic meningitis: Erenberg after swimming in Stillwater’s Lily Lake last summer and LaMeyer after swimming near her Stacy home in 2008. The event will be from 5-11 p.m. at O’Gara’s Bar & Grill, 164 N. Snelling Ave. in St. Paul. G.B. Leighton will perform. Tickets are $10. See www.swimabovewater.org for more information.
