Benefit held for tornado victims at Bobby Mackey's

WILDER, KY (FOX19) - A dinner and benefit was held at Bobby Mackey's on Saturday night to raise money for local tornado victims.

"We do a lot of fundraisers and put things together. I usually do it for the homeless and I figured it's time to step up and help with everything here," said Christel Brooks, of the Northern Kentucky Paranormal Society.

Brooks said people dropped off food earlier in the day for the tornado victims before the raffles began. Among the raffle items was a guitar signed by Carrie Underwood. The event also included live music.
