Friends hold benefit concert for wreck victims

One month after a bad wreck in Worth County killed a young boy and injured five family members, the community came together to help the Reddell family. Organizers held a benefit concert in Doles.

The day started with music and will most likely end with music. Whether it's the banging of the drums or the revving of ATVs, people came out to the Benefit at the Bottom for one key reason. That's to raise money for the Reddell family. Brandy Dent figured a concert at the ATV park would be perfect.

"It's been a long recovery emotionally and physically," said Dent. "We're doing the best we can to help them."

Money from T-shirt sales, food, and the raffle will all go towards the Reddells.

"We're trying to help them with expenses at home," Dent added. "They've been out of work for a month with five kids, I can't imagine how tough that must be."

The four boys and one girl are still recovering, but are all expected to be okay. Bristal Thompson, one artist who sang earlier, is good friends with one of the brothers.

"I think it's beautiful people are coming together to support them even people they don't know," said Thompson.

All funds will help pay for the family's medical expenses.
