Fundraiser set for E. coli patient | Events
CASAR, NC (WBTV) - Family and friends are rallying together to help raise money for two-year-old Hunter Tallent.
Tallent is one of several people who became sick with E. coli after attending the NC State Fair in Raleigh. The state traced the outbreak back to a livestock barn at the fairgrounds.
The family is holding the fundraiser to help raise money to cover Hunter's medical bills from his hospital stay. The family says the state has not stepped in to help.
The event is called Hunter's Angels and will take place Saturday at 10 a.m. through noon Sunday at Cole Creek Arena in Casar.
The benefit will include a trail ride, auction, BBQ and New Year's Eve Party. A band and DJ are to be announced and will begin playing around dark.
Trail rides start at 10 a.m. and go until 1 p.m. daily. BBQ is served at 1:30 p.m. and the auction starts at 3 p.m.
Costs range from $10 per person for BBQ to $25 for a trail ride and food.
