(ABC 6 News) -- From city council members to teachers, dozens of people from across the region came out Thursday to support a member of the ABC 6 News family.
A benefit was held at Pizza Ranch in Austin in honor of ABC 6 News Chief Photographer Chad Corey. He is in need of a kidney transplant and is currently undergoing dialysis three times a week at Mayo Clinic. He says the support he is seeing is making a huge difference in healing.
"I'm overwhelmed with the amount of people here, which is really great," said Corey, "I never really imagined so many people would come out, I mean even people that I haven't seen in many years, even first-grade teachers, it's pretty incredible to see the support."
The support has been so overwhelming, Chad's family and friends are throwing another benefit on October 6, at the Austin Eagles Club from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.
