The energy was positive in city of Brampton as locals rallied to help the families affected by the devastating fire.

On June 8 a fire destroyed 18 units in an apartment complex and left a 10-year-old boy dead. A fundraiser was held on Saturday at the Lions Banquet Hall with a goal of raising $10 000.

During the afternoon there were activities taking place for all ages; there were dunk tanks, raffles and jumping castles. After 8 p.m. it is set to turn into a 19+ event, which includes a comedy show hosted by Mike Bullard.

Organizer Sarah Lewis has spent three weeks putting the event together.

“It’s been phenomenal. I’ve got some great people behind me and Brampton has literally united,” she said.

Brampton mayor Susan Fennell also stopped by to show her support.
