FT. MADISON, IA. (WGEM) -- On Friday night we told the story of Lucas Montgomery, who is the son of Former Iowa football player Lew Montgomery.
Lucas is currently in a fight against an incurable disease called Sanfillipo B MPS which limits his ability to talk and depletes motor skills.
On Saturday night the city of Fort Madison came together to give back.
The event at Kinnick South in Fort Madison was a huge success.
Prior to the event organizers told WGEM Sports they hoped to raise $5,000 in support of Lucas and his family..
On Saturday evening, WGEM Sports learned that it raised nearly double the goal, close to $10,000 dollars.
All of the proceeds will go toward benefiting the family, including needs such as handicap accessibility for their home, and treatment for Lucas.
