Eli Thomas Fundraiser Set for Sunday


A fundraising event for former Elmira Express football standout and UConn redshirt junior linebacker Eli Thomas will take place in Elmira on Sunday.

Friends of Eli, a new community group comprised of friends of Eli and his family in the Elmira area, are holding a spaghetti dinner from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday at the Elmira Elks Lodge, 300 E. Gray St., to raise additional money for Eli. The dinner will include basket raffles, 50/50 drawings, and door prizes. Tickets will be $10 each and can be purchased at the door.

Thomas suffered a stroke last month prior to a weightlifting workout and is now recovering.
