Weyburn residents continue to help a Weyburn family in need of support as their son recovers from heart surgery.

A fundraiser took place on Sunday evening to support the family of Kevin and Crystal Cornish while they stay in Edmonton.

Nolan Cornish was born eight months ago on the side of the highway on the way to the hospital in Regina.

Kevin, Father of Nolan, had to deliver Nolan with help by medical professionals over the phone. He was born with Down Syndrome and holes in his heart.

Nolan has spent most of his life in Hospital and at the end of November had heart surgery in Edmonton. He nearly died, was resuscitated and continues to slowly recover. Kevin and Crystal, Nolans Mother with Nate, Nolans brother continue to stay in Edmonton during Nolan's recovery. The family are staying in a Ronald McDonald House.

The fundraiser included a supper, silent auction and a 50/50 raffle.

"It went over really well," explained Melissa Lebersback, Co-organizer of the event.

"The overall fundraiser was a huge success, the family is so loved and supported, it's awesome to see."

Lebersback added that the organizers of the event originally planned for 120 tickets but ended up selling 150, which was the total tickets the restaurant could let them have. After some "begging and pleading," they were able to have an extra 20 tickets taking them to 170.

"We still have some money coming in and of course the silent auction donation money to collect but our rough total is $5175."

"Thanks to everyone involved, this wouldn't have been possible without a large group of people that helped make everything happen, everybody who worked, everybody who donated, everybody who attended and of course to Browns as well, they were excellent hosts."

Other groups of people connected to the Cornish's are planning fundraisers in the near future.
