Posted by Debra Worley - email

PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Members of Riley's Baptist Church in Pender County were able to raise nearly $8,000 this weekend to benefit a 5-year-old girl.

Church members were planning to raise money to help 41-year-old Bridget Whitfield battle ovarian cancer, but Whitfield passed away in August.

Now, they will put the money raised in a trust fund for Whitfield's daughter Hannah.
