LA VERGNE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A spaghetti dinner was held Saturday to support local families whose homes were damaged by a recent sewer overflow.

News 2 first told you about the problems 88-year-old Gertrude Phillips has been going through after sewage backed up in her home, twice.

The city of La Vergne admitted blame the first time and paid for repairs, but back-tracked from paying a second time.

In late February a Haz-Mat crew from Premier Protective Services Inc. decontaminated Phillips’ home from top to bottom – free of charge.

All proceeds will help the families get back on their feet and repair their residences.
