Gourmet hot dog fundraiser to help family of UAA grad lost in Japan

According to its Facebook page, M.A.'s Gourmet Dogs, a Downtown Anchorage specialty hot dog cart whose annual opening has been known for years now as a sure sign of spring, will be holding a fundraiser to help some of its close friends find Monty Dickson, a University of Alaska Anchorage honor graduate and English teacher who is still lost in Japan following the chain of disasters that struck last month. All proceeds from the restaurant's sales on Monday, April 4, will go to help two of Dickson's relatives travel to Japan to continue the search for their loved-one. M.A.'s Gourmet Dogs is located on the corner of 4th Avenue and F Street in Anchorage and opens every weekday at 10:30 a.m.
