A benefit for Tyler County resident Darren Swisher will be held Nov. 7, 1-9 p.m. at Sistersville Volunteer Fire Department.

Swisher is a 22-year-old Tyler County resident who was in a severe ATV accident on Aug. 26. Swisher was taken by helicopter to Ruby Memorial Hospital. His family and friends thought he would never survive.

Swisher had an emergency surgery to remove half his skull, followed by a stay in the Intensive Care Unit for almost two weeks. Swisher was in an induced coma for over a week.

Swisher is now walking after taking part in intense therapy. He is currently located at Health South in Morgantown.

Cost for the spaghetti dinner is $12 for adults, $6 for kids three to 12, and free for children under two.

Items to be raffled include a helmet, t-shirts, Bunn coffee pot, scope, binoculars, Hays tool box, gift cards, homemade quilts, WVU signed memorabilia, and more. There will also be a 50/50 raffle.
