New Beginnings Community Center organized the fundraiser, which featured live music with the Boot Scoot Boogie Band, pig and duck races, and kids' corner and inflatable toy, games, raffles, contests, prizes, and food.
The facility is a new group home that's being created for people suffering from traumatic brain injury, which Michael suffered after his tragic accident.
"We're ready to go," Alysson Scerri of New Beginnings Community Center said. She said this week that the facility was given the green light for eight bedrooms.
Many caring and skilled volunteers have offered their services and donations of materials from building supply companies have also poured in, Scerri said.
But funds are still needed: The organization still must raise an estimated $75,000 to $100,000 in additional donations to complete the project; fundraisers have been organized in recent months.
