Fundraiser Held For Family Who Lost Toddler, Grandmother In Crash

Posted: Updated:

SUMNER COUNTY, Tenn. – A community held a fundraiser Thursday night for a family who lost a 3-year-old girl and her grandmother in a crash last month.

The Bouge family was involved in a car crash in Robertson County in January, which killed three-year-old Wyncie and her grandmother, Janice Carlton.

Wyncie's mother, Megan, remains at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Her now five-week old infant, Emmett, suffered a broken leg.

The fundraiser at Hoppity Hop Inflatables in Hendersonville was to raise money to help support the family in this difficult time.

"You know it could be any of us. We could all have had this tragedy, but when it comes to doing something like this I just think people come together and help each other, because that's what we're supposed to do, and that's what we're here for," said volunteer Sheila Baskins.

All of the funds from the fundraiser will go directly to the Bouge family.

Facebook Page has been set up to support the Bouge family.

A fund has been set up to help the family financially during this difficult time. You can make a donation to the Bouge Family Assistance Fund at Regions Bank branch.

Funds can also be donated via http://www.giveforward.com/supportthebougefamily.
