Krstic's mother and sister already were in Oklahoma City to be with Krstic and his wife, Tatjana, who on Oct. 14 had their first child, Elena.
"There are a lot of poor people living there," Krstic said. "They don't really have money, so it's a hard thing that happened over there. A lot of people are living in the streets, not only because their house was destroyed. They were scared to spend the night in the house because they were saying another earthquake was coming. They were scared something might fall down on them.
"Two people died, but it could be much worse. I'm all right. I'm just sad about my hometown."
Krstic said many people in Kraljevo work for $200 or $300 a month, "So you can imagine how much it (tonight's fundraiser) is going to help. I really appreciate the organization."
