Hundreds came together Saturday to help raise money for a Benton woman's medical expenses.

In March, Charleen Bonnette was Diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer.

The fundraising event, held at Bossier City's Central Baptist Church, helped with her medical and treatment expenses.

There was a raffle, bake sale, and delicious food.

Organizers say Charleen is a beloved part of her family and a friend to many in the Benton Community.
