DICKSON CITY, Pa. -- A community in Lackawanna County came together to raise money for a young boy battling cerebral palsy.

The pasta dinner at the Eagle Hose Company in Dickson City was for 12-year-old Brent Bush of Olyphant.

Raffles and a bake sale helped raise money for a handicap accessible van with a wheelchair lift.

Brent's dad tells Newswatch 16 he was overwhelmed by the show of support.

"I think this was an amazing turnout. I didn't expect this much support from everyone. I can't believe how everyone came together and donated to this cause," Teddy Bush said.

Dozens of people came out and donated to the cause.
