HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) -- A Huntsville family is still trying to heal after losing 10-year-old Jaden Coppens in a wreck on May 28th. The wreck was part of a multiple-vehicle crash that occurred at the intersection of Bailey Cove Road and Weatherly Road in South Huntsville.

While the family is trying to heal physically and emotionally, friends tell WHNT News 19 that the wreck has left them with unexpected medical expenses. Friends of the family have rallied together and are hosting a fundraiser for the Coppens family tonight (June 29) at Straight to Ale Brewery on Leeman Ferry Road.

“Andrea loves music, the girls love to sing," said organizer Autumn Terzopoulos. "All of them love to sing and dance so music is the best way to get people out and honor her memory.”

Several local bands are onstage until 11:30 p.m. including Doubleshot, Blackeyed Susan, Marthia Sides, and Vintage Cowboy. It's a family-friendly atmosphere complete with a gameroom and great music. One dollar from every beer sold will go straight into the hands of the Coppens family to help ease the burden of medical expenses.

An account has also been set up at Redstone Federal Credit Union for all donations for the Coppens family.
