SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- The community came together Saturday to support a local teen who was hit by an alleged drunk driver last year.

The Loyal Order of Moose in Springfield hosted a silent auction and bingo day with all funds raised going to the family of Jimmy Holland.

Jimmy was hit by an alleged drunk driver near Harrisburg in December and lost his leg.

Doors opened at 11 Saturday morning and they are expecting people to come out all day in support.

Mark Holland, who owns the Moose Lodge, says this is the second event they've hosted and that the community always shows up.

"It feels great to us that they're all here. They jump in. When we're doing this we never have a shortage of volunteers coming in to help. A bunch of the local businesses donate," Holland said.

Jimmy was in attendance for a portion of the event.

The last time they hosted a bingo night to raise money for Jimmy they raised over $6,000 and they said they will continue to host events raising money for his recovery.

They will be having bingo games until 8 tonight and invite the whole community to come out and help support a local family.
