An effort to help the families of five youths injured in an accident Dec. 16, 2019, is underway.

“It’s going to be a long recovery for some of them,” said Donna Leabhart, one of the organizers of the fundraiser. 

One of the youths involved in the accident wasn’t released from the hospital until last week. 

While those involved in the accident are expected to recover, the medical bills and other pressures are creating a financial burden for the families.

Bar 86 is set to host the fundraiser with a complementary dinner — courtesy South China Restaurant— and a charity prize drawing Friday, Jan. 31, starting at 5 p.m. 

Tickets for the drawing will be available for purchase at the Bar 86 from Monday, Jan. 27, through the end of the week. 

There will also be a D.J. and free pool the night of the fundraiser. 

All proceeds are to go to the accident victims and their families.  Those who want to attend the fundraiser have to be 21 and older. Bar 86 is located at 900 South Cove View Road in Richfield.
