BARTONSVILLE -- Hundreds of people turned out Thursday for a fundraiser in Monroe County, all to help the victims of a deadly crash.

Big Daddy's Restaurant in Bartonsville hosted the benefit Thursday evening.  Friends and family gathered here to help Justin Bullock and the family of Steve Dienno.

Bullock was badly hurt back in September when he was riding in a vehicle that lost control near Scott Run.  Dienno, the driver of the vehicle, died in the wreck.  A third victim, Michael Komnosky, was also hurt in the wreck.

The teens were all teammates on the Pocono Mountain East Football team.  Organizers said tonight's benefit is the least they could do.

"We are a community and communities need to come together and show their support and help these families out.  They could use anything they could get right now," said Alyssa Toye, an organizer.

100% of the proceeds from Thursday's benefit in the Poconos will go the families of the victims.
