On Saturday afternoon, the Fort Myers Brewing Company is holding a fundraiser to help the family of 9-year-old Adyn Pickett with medical bills left behind after he died of cancer last week.
The Adyn Strong fundraiser, which runs from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. at 12811 Commerce Lakes Drive, will feature food, drink, live music and a silent auction. The community donated items to Fort Myers Brewing Company to be auctioned off, including kayaks, raffle tickets, and children’s baskets.
The brewery has raised funds for the Pickett family in the past, and staff describe Adyn as having the greatest smile and kindest heart. It is hoped the money raised can make things a little easier for his parents and sister Adyn.
Jennifer Whyte, co-owner of Fort Myers Brewing Company, said: “It’s unfortunate that anyone has to host these types of events. “But it is an honor to do so. And it’s humbling to be able to do so. No family has to go through what they’re going through right now. And I think I think a lot about Erica and James [Pickett], apparently they lost a son. “
