BBQ fundraiser to help young ATV victim

Posted by Debra Worley - email

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The community is holding a fundraiser this weekend to help the Carr family pay for medical bills for their four-year-old son.

Jones Carr was on a four wheeler with his father in February when the child pushed the gas and the ATV flipped, pinning him underneath.

Doctors told the family that Jones wouldn't make it, but he finally returned home last week to live with his family.

The community is holding a barbeque this weekend to raise money to help the family pay for medical bills.  The fundraiser begins at 11:00 Saturday morning at the Union Rescue Squad building in Willard.

The cost is $7 per plate, but additional donations well be accepted.
