Fundraiser held for two boys injured in bounce house accident
SOUTH GLENS FALLS -- All month long, the South Glens Falls community has been coming together, raising money for two young boys injured, when their inflatable bounce house blew away. Sunday another fundraiser was held. Sunday's fundraiser at Mr. Bills Car Hop is expected to be the biggest one yet. The group Bulldogs Unite is putting on all of these fundraisers for those two boys injured in that bounce house accident. They tell us so far they've already raised $6000 for the families.
"If they need more, whatever we can do to help them out, we'll help them out," says Jerry Labarr, owner of Mr. Bills Car Hop.
"Over the past month we've done phenomenal. We've had a car wash at the firehouse, and they did a great job they raised over 35 hundred dollars, and then we did one at Mr Bill's here, we did ice cream, they raised about 800 dollars. Recovery Room was a little over 1000 and then today is going to be tremendous," adds McKenzie Mooney, a Bulldog Unite Committee Member.
McKenzie Mooney is one of the many volunteers with Bulldogs Unite. She joined her daughter, a classmate of Noah and Cameron Sunday. The community has been rallying together to help pay for any medical costs of the two boys who were severely injured when the bounce house they were playing in, blew off the ground in a freak accident.
The family of Noah was at Sunday's fundraiser, and stood by humbled at the community for standing by them, and their son.
"This comes from both families I know they appreciate it as well as we do. The generosity and the support is just overwhelming. It's just nice to know that people care. I mean they are strangers, there are people we know, it's a wonderful thing and we are very blessed and we appreciate it," says Noah's mother Michelle DeLuca.
"Just we're very gracious for the community and what they are doing. It just means the world to us," adds Noah's father John.
Both boys are now out of the hospital, and are expected to be okay.
