Hundreds turn out at Aguero benefit
Funds raised will go toward the family of the late Aguero, who passed away suddenly at a softball game last week in Charlotte.
Willie Anderson, manager of WB Supply Company, said that Aguero was in the process of being hired by the company, but wanted to obtain his license first.
He was amazed by the large turnout, as there was a long line of people circling both inside and outside the building.
At last count, the event raised over $6,180 and donations are continuing to come in. Anderson reached out to many businesses and individuals and people in ministry, asking for them to help the family– and they responded.
“I want to give a big shout out to the staff. They were the arms and legs of the event,” Anderson said.
He added, “We expected maybe 50 people, not 500,” said Anderson. “It was pretty moving seeing that many people. It’s important to try and help each other out. That is what God calls us to do.”
Anderson said he wanted to thank everyone who assisted and made the event possible. He also expressed thanks to those who purchased plates for staying patient.
“Thanks to all who made it happen.”
Plans are underway for another fundraiser at WB Supply Compay on Saturday, Sept. 1.
