Grace has her own fundraising page and has set a goal of raising $5,000. She is more than half-way there with just over $3,300 raised.
She’s been raising money through several events.
“The main one was at Pizza King in Mooresville,” Bennett said. “We had events there every Friday during the month of August. Then we also had a benefit concert by Sunrise Studios at Avon-Washington Township Park.”
Bennett said her daughter even performed at that event.
“She sang a song called, ‘Angel By Your Side,’ by Francesca Battistelli,” she said. “It was a tear jerker, of course. I was a blubbering mess because she said, ‘this is for my mom who has always been by my side.’”
Grace emptied her own piggy bank to donate to a friend’s fundraising page for the Ride for Kids — Tori McQueen. She’s the sister of one of Grace’s best friends, Brianna “Princess Bri” McQueen, who died March 21 after losing her battle with cancer.
Those who would like to donate to the PBTF and help Grace meet her goal are asked to visit her page online at http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/gracebennett/2012-indianapolis-ride-for-kids.
