MEDINA, Minn. (AP) — Months after a devastating tornado struck Wadena, a benefit will be held this weekend to help the still-recovering Minnesota town.

The Wadena Relief Benefit will be held Sunday from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Medina Entertainment Center in Medina.

Music will be provided by the White Iron Band and the Backseat Boogie Band — featuring St. Paul City Councilman Dave Thune on lead guitar.

A silent auction will feature items such as a football signed by Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen and a hockey stick autographed by the Minnesota Wild team.

All proceeds benefit the Wadena Relief fund. Tickets are $40 at the door.

The June 17 tornado that hit Wadena destroyed more than 260 structures, including the high school.
