The community continues to reach out to flood victims in Penn Yan.

Tonight there is a fundraiser at Bistro 11 on West Main Street in Victor from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. Employees will hand over any tips to benefit the victims and there will also be a 50/50 raffle and silent auction.

All donations will go to "Christmas for the Needy" -- the organization News10NBC helped collect toys for last week. It lost $20,000 worth of toys when floods hit last month.

The flooding damage touches home for staff. Some are Penn Yan natives and the restaurant owner's wife teaches in Penn Yan.
