Benefit for Austin

BANCROFT (WAOW)--A 6 year-old boy from Bancroft needs a service dog with a $14,000 dollar price tag. On Saturday, Ponderosa Pines hosted a benefit for young Austin Warzynski.

Austin had a stroke at just 9 months old. Now, he uses a walker and struggles with seizures.

"The dog will help Austin walk. It'll detect his seizures if he is going to have one before anyone else and be able to alert him and us if something is going to happen," says Austin's Father, Alvin Warzynski.

Local businesses printed T-shirts and provided food and raffle prizes. Organizers expect the event to raise about $5,000 dollars.
