Duluth's Chester Creek Cafe hosted the second benefit in two weeks for a couple that lost their home over the holidays.

Vanessa Letourneau and Don Brewington were victims of an apartment fire at 3:30 p.m. in the morning on Christmas. On Jan. 4 the Owls Club, where Brewington is a member, threw a benefit. The following Sunday Letourneau's employer, Chester Creek Cafe, put on a spaghetti dinner.

Something was a little different at Chester Creek on Sunday, though. The servers were cooking, and the cooks were serving. Letourneau's aunt said that's because they wanted to help without getting paid.

"It's kind of a deal in the restaurant business where if you have a cook cook, you really have to pay them," she said. "And they all wanted to volunteer their time. So to do that, they switched places."

Anyone interested in donating to Letourneau and Brewington can still bring a cash or check donation to Chester Creek Cafe.
