Fundraiser helps families get into the doctor's office

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A benefit was held Saturday in South Jonesboro, where the "DDS 4 NEA Foundation" held the second annual summer games.

Higginbotham Family Dental and several other sponsors held a horseshoe and baggo tournament, along with a silent auction. Proceeds from the fundraiser will go toward helping families go to the doctor.

While Saturday was about fun, it was also about helping others. Lai Ferrell with the "DDS 4 NEA Foundation" says that the foundation was founded on helping out what they call "the working poor."

Tickets to the event included all you can eat crawfish and drinks. 20 different companies sponsored the games and food.
