LISBON —A fundraiser for a Lisbon family that lost two children in a fire last month brought in about $12,000, according to Legacy Publishing Company.

Lorna Hogan, who is a sales representative for the Auburn-based company, tried to rescue her daughters, 11-year-old Natalie and 6-year-old Kelsey, but was unable to save the girls during the early morning fire March 4.

On April 8, more than 300 people attended the Hogan Family Benefit at the Fireside Inn in Portland. Hundreds more donated auction items and services.

Legacy Publishing organized the benefit to raise money and provide emotional support for Hogan and her four surviving children.
