A benefit yard sale, bake sale and auction for 16-year-old Austin Bonebrake will be held on Friday, May 15 from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m., and organizers are seeking donations of items for the sales. The event will include live music and food. The auction will begin at 5 p.m.
Bonebrake was injured in a sledding accident on Feb. 19, crushing two vertebrae and leaving him with no feeling from the neck down. All funds generated via the event will go to Bonebrake's family to help pay for medical expenses.
Donations for the sales will be accepted Monday, May 11 through Thursday, May 14 from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. at Mullins Realty Group, located at 2323 North Mt. Juliet Road. Any unsold items will be donated to charity.
