(ABC 6 NEWS)-- Roughly 400 people showed up to support a family who lost their 12 year old son to an ATV accident.  This morning they were raising money for a Foundation in his name, called "Hugs for Hunter".  The family says Hunter loved to make people smile, which is something this fundraiser aims to do. All of the money will help make blankets and teddy bears for children recovering in the hospital.  Today's breakfast fundraiser was a huge success.  Hunter's family saw many familiar faces, and some, they've never met.  Hunter's parents say the "Hugs for Hunter Foundation" also brings youth together as they work as a team to tie the blankets and get them ready for the kids.
