The fundraiser Saturday includes a motorcycle show, silent auction, inflatables, children's activities and food. Wright is hoping to make at least $2,000 from the day.
Wright didn't know the Butler family very well until this event. Her son Thayden went to school in Moore with Nathan, and their teacher lives in the same neighborhood. Now Wright is one of the leading advocates in helping the Butlers.
“They are a very deserving family,” she said.
Stephanie Butler calls the response from Wright and others “very humbling.”
“I didn't expect such kindness,” she said. “The support and love has been great.”
How to help
Those unable to attend the carnival can still help the Butler family by donating to a special fund set up at any Bank of Oklahoma location under the “Nathan Butler Fund.” Or call Wright at 474-4122.
