WILSONVILLE, Ore. -- Community members, friends and family of missing now-8-year-old Kyron Horman are having a fundraiser to help raise funds for the search effort.
Kyron disappeared from Skyline Elementary School on June 4. No suspects have been named in connection with his disappearance.
"A missing child is a scary thing for a lot of kids, and we want them to know that if it ever happens to them, somebody's going to be there to help," said Carol Knowlton, who helped organize the fundraiser.
Bullwinkle’s manager Monday said the event raised $1,500. In all, 272 people bought wristbands of the some-500 in attendance.
Sunday's event was being held through 9 p.m. at the Family Fun Center & Bullwinkle's Restaurant at 29111 SW Town Center Loop West in Wilsonville. Participants pay $15 for an unlimited amount of games, including Go-Karts, Lazer Tag, and Miniature Golf -- and $4 of that cost goes to help fund the search for Kyron.
"It's Kyron's favorite place, and it's all about Kyron today," said manager Darren Harmon.
The effort was organized by the creators of the Missing Kyron Horman Facebook page. The event is also to celebrate Kyron's 8th birthday, which was on Thursday.
Kyron's mother Desiree held a celebration at a church in her hometown of Medford.
