Saturday’s fundraising evening for the Austin family in Yellowknife raised more than $26,000.
That figure comes from the YK1 school board, which organized and promoted the event at the city’s Sir John Franklin school.
YK1 says approximately 750 people attended in support of Malcolm Austin, a six-year-old who attends the city’s Range Lake North School.
Last October, Malcolm was diagnosed with a particularly aggressive form of brain tumour that requires treatment in Edmonton.
