OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Roughly 1,000 people attended a fundraiser Sunday for the victims of last month’s deadly building collapse at an Omaha livestock feed manufacturer’s plant.

Organizers of the spaghetti dinner event were pleasantly surprised with the turnout at the Ralston Arena.

Alyssa Stout said she never expected this big of a crowd at the event to help the people who worked with her father, Duanne Stout, at International Nutrition.

The Jan. 20 collapse killed 47-year-old David Ball and 53-year-old Keith Everett and injured several others.

Then the company laid off 25 production workers while it works to rebuild the plant.

The money raised Sunday is going to be shared by all the victims.

The cause of the collapse hasn’t been determined.
