Savannah raising money to "Save One of Our Own"

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Dozens of people gathered in Thunderbolt Sunday night, at Tubby's to celebrate the life of Rick Knight.

Knight was recently diagnosed with A.L.S also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. The group "Help Save One of Our Own" decided to hold a fundraiser for him and his family to offset any costs of renovating Rick's home as his illness progresses.

"We'll have to rearrange some of the house to make it wheelchair accessible. Some of the doctor bill we'll incur and stuff like that to pay for things that we're going to need help with down the road," said Knight.

The fundraiser also featured a low country boil, live bands plus a silent auction and raffle.
