Arlington resident Clint Wrzesinski talks with friends at an Oso Victim's Relief Benefit at The Krosswalk in Arlington on Friday, March 28, 2014. "I haven't heard back from two or three people," said Wrzesinski, who has a lot of friends from the Oso area. Locals Jennifer Starr and Kari O'Sullivan, who had planned to celebrate O'Sullivan's birthday at The Krosswalk, decided to turn their plans into a benefit instead. "It didn't feel right to just be celebrating," said O'Sullivan. "We just wanted to come together in a place of hope and caring," Starr said, to celebrate life and remember those who have been lost. At the end of the night, they had raised about $4500 in cash through admission, donations and raffles, as well as two truckloads of donations of clothing, blankets and other supplies. All of the proceeds will go towards helping families affected by the disaster. LINDSEY WASSON/THE SEATTLE TIMES
