Benefit a success for young stroke victim

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Dozens gathered at a benefit to support a young stroke victim.

Supporters attended the Collin Holman Benefit from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Elks Lodge in Jonesboro to raise money for the family of six-month-old Collin, who has had at least five strokes since he was born.

All the benefit proceeds will go towards helping his parents, Dave and Andrea Holman, pay the mounting medical bills.

Collin is hospitalized at Boston Children's Hospital in Massachusetts.

"Our goal was just to get as much donation as we could. We've already set up a bank account for Collin and all the money is going into that and the parents have access to that," said event organizer Kathy Humphrey.

The benefit featured live entertainment by "Burning Waco," "Fallen Within," "Gypsy Revolution" and others. 

Benefit attendees could give $10 donations for barbecue dinners and participate in a silent auction.
