A local community gathered Saturday in efforts to bring a loved one home.
It was a packed house as family and friends of John Berisford got together for a Quarter Auction at the Sandford Center in Moundsville. Berisford is a local man in a coma stuck in China.
The cost to bring him home costs a little more than your average plane ticket. Admission to today's event was five dollars and that included one paddle. There was also a Chinese auction and fifty fifty raffle.
All the proceeds from today's event will go to help bring John home.
