Hundreds gather to join "Addie's Army"

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A fundraiser for a little girl with Leukemia has raised $11,000.

Hundreds came together to help the little girl, who has become a victim of more than just a deadly disease.

A packed crowd filled Jim Porter's Good Time Emporium, to raise money for three-year-old Addilyn Roberts. It was called, "St. Addie's Day", there was live music, a silent auction and even chainsaw carvings people could buy. Addie's parents said they were overwhelmed.

This comes just weeks after family friend Kyle Nunn was arrested for allegedly stealing nine thousand dollars from the charity "Addie's Army."

Addie's mother said Nunn told them he was setting up a concert featuring country star Jason Aldean.

When Aldean heard about all this, he donated several autographed items for tonight's fundraiser.

Jim Porter's says it will be a couple of days before it knows how much tonight's event brought in.
