Fundraisers are being held for a nonprofit organization and a Plant City child awaiting a bone marrow transplant.
Fist Bumps for Jax
The second annual Fist Bumps for Jax fundraiser is taking place Saturday at the Corner Store, 121 E. Reynolds St.
The Diaz family, which owns the Corner Store, is hosting the event for their 3-year-old son, Jaxon.
