The Maple Grove Arts Center will host a spaghetti lunch and silent auction event on Sunday to benefit Jacob Beneke's wife and six-year-old son, KARE 11 reports. Beneke was among the six victims who lost their life in September after shooting at Accent Signage Systems in northeast Minneapolis.

Two other victims were wounded in the mass shooting before the shooter, Andrew Engeldinger, turned the gun on himself. He was an employee terminated from the company the day he opened fire.

Last month, officials at Accent Signage Systems vowed that the company will continue operations despite the worst workplace shooting in recent Minnesota history.
