The Duluth Owls Club rallied behind one of their members on Saturday.

A Christmas morning fire on the 600 block of E. Fifth Street put Don Brewington, Vanessa Letourneau and their pets out of a home in December. They made it out of their apartment safely, but they still have no home until the damage is taken care of.

The Owls Club held a benefit on Saturday night to raise money for the couple.

"Don is a member of our board and he's also been a longtime bartender here back and forth," said Owls Club Bartender Don Little. "So we decided that this was the place to do it ... it's just a part of community pride and that's what we do for a club member."

Little said they were expecting about 200 people at the benefit. The fire caused about $35,000 in damage to the building.
