Benefit planned for Sathoff July 18

By Staff | Jul 11, 2009

ARMSTRONG – On cool summer evenings, it’s not uncommon for friends and family to gather around a campfire to relax, share stories and make new memories. Hearing the snap of burning firewood and watching the fire light up the night is almost always enjoyable … almost.

On June 9, over 70 percent of Lyle Sathoff’s body was burned in an explosion from a bonfire. The 16-year-old from Armstrong received second, third and fourth degree burns.

He has gone through three skin grafts and pneumonia, but there is good news – he’s no longer on life support and not in critical condition.

Sathoff is currently at Regents Medical Center in St. Paul, Minn. His aunt Amy Sathoff said it is one of the best burn units in the country.

Terry and Becky Sathoff, Lyle’s parents, are with him in St. Paul.

A benefit for Sathoff will be held Sunday, July 19, at the Armstrong Community Center to raise money for the family. A dance will be held from 4-8 p.m. A dinner of pork loin sandwiches, hamburgers, chips, baked beans, salads and bars will also begin at 4 p.m. Free will donations will be accepted for the dinner.

At 5 p.m. an auction will be held. Donations for the auction may be left at Dale’s Rec or Valley Vue Care Center in Armstrong.

Bet on the blow will begin at 7 p.m. Attendees will place bets on how long it will take before the engine quits.

Come to Armstrong Sunday to support Lyle and his family. Supplemental funds provided by Thrivent Financial. Donations can also be made at NorthStar Bank in Armstrong and Estherville.
