Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Colten Robertson was born with heart problems in February and has undergone five open heart surgeries in the Twin Cities since.

He hasn't been able to leave the hospital and his medical bills have been piling up.

To help pay those expenses, the Pastor at Esko Lutheran Church, organized a fundraiser tonight at Esko High School.

"We are having a spaghetti dinner that we are hoping to feed about seven hundred to eight hundred people. We have a silent auction where people have donated multiple items and the silent auction everything is over 75 to one hundred dollars in value," said Pastor Bruce Bergstedt.

The benefit for Colten was based entirely on volunteer efforts and will help the Robertson family financially, but also emotionally by showing support from their friends and family in Esko.
