WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Carolina First Bank is hosting a fundraiser this weekend for a fallen hero.

Money generated from the first annual Mayfaire Family Fun Day will go to the family of First Sgt. Ed Kramer, who recently died while on duty in Iraq.

The event will be held at the Mayfaire Concert Center on August 9 from 2:00-5:00 PM.  There will be games, food, and music.

"It just started out as a small idea, and then, all of these people jumped on the band wagon to make it an awesome event for the family and the community," said Rachel Carbett with Carolina First Bank.  "We are really excited and hope a lot of people show up.

Tickets will be available on the day of the event.  They cost about $0.50 and provide access to about a dozen booth games.
