LAWRENCE — As they continue to dig out of the damage their flower and vegetable market sustained in a May 28 tornado, Karen and John Pendleton were the beneficiaries Tuesday of a fundraiser spearheaded by a number of Kansas City-area chefs.

Jasper Mierabile Jr., owner of Jasper’s Restaurant and founder of Slow Food Kansas City, cooked up sausages, sliders and chicken, with proceeds going directly to the Pendletons.

Karen Pendleton, an Iola native, is the daughter of the late Mo and Rose Mary Riley who for many years farmed and raised cattle in rural Piqua.
