GASTONIA, N.C. (WBTV) - State troopers are holding a community fundraiser for Trooper Christopher Wooten and his family in early October. Trooper Wooten was involved in a motorcycle crash in Charlotte that unfortunately left him paralyzed from the neck down in July.

The all-day fundraising event will take place on Oct. 2 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Ray Nathan’s restaurant at 4571 South New Hope Road in Gastonia.
BBQ plates are $10 each. Those who plan to attend are asked to send pre-orders to TrooperWootenEvent@gmail.com.
