Hundreds show their support at the Boys of Bruceton Fundraiser

BRUCETON MILLS — On Feb. 14, Tammy Bishoff lost her 15-year-old son Brayden after a car crash that occurred as the boy returned home from Preston High.
Saturday brought an outpouring in memory of Brayden and three classmates who were injured.
“It’s overwhelming,” said Bishoff. “It’s very humbling to see that our community, and bigger than just our community, has came out to help us and support the boys that were injured in the accident.”
The Boys of Bruceton Fundraiser brought hundreds from the community out to Bruceton Fire Hall to support families of the four Bruceton boys involved in the accident.
