A benefit is set for a Sapulpa soldier who put a professional sports career on hold to fight in Iraq.  Shane Vincent was critically injured after a roadside bomb hit his Humvee in May.  The explosion killed another soldier in the vehicle and left Shane in a coma.  Since the attack, Shane has been recovering at a Florida hospital.

Family members expect Shane to return to Sapulpa on Friday.  He will be able to attend his own "Dinner With a Hero" event at the First Baptist Church of Sapulpa.

Lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Sapulpa's First Baptist Church at 200 S. Elm.  Dinner will begin at 6 p.m.  Those organizing the dinner say they are accepting donations for the spaghetti dinner.

Plans are to present Shane Vincent with a new Dodge truck, a Suzuki ATV, and a check.
