Benefit for fire victims called off

The Boston Billiard Club fund-raiser planned for a local family who lost most of its belongings and two pets in a Mizoras Drive fire has been cancelled.

Jennifer Butler, a bartender, said the Nov. 7 fund-raiser will not take place “due to unforeseen circumstances.”

The fund-raiser was planned by Butler and other co-workers of Shelley Robinson, a Boston Billiard Club employee whose family lost nearly everything – including two pets – in a fire last week.

The fire started in a bedroom on the first floor of the 2½-story house.
