(Northampton, MA)  —  A South Hadley man has been arraigned for embezzling from a fundraiser.  Twenty-one-year-old Brian Abair allegedly raised money to honor the memory of a deceased friend, then kept most of the proceeds. South Hadley native Seth Machak died last year at the age of 29. Abair pleaded not guilty to larceny Tuesday in Hampshire Superior Court.
