In Paso Robles, a fundraiser was held on Friday for a firefighter’s daughter battling a rare autoimmune disease and kidney failure. 

The city council approved the Professional Firefighters Association to host a cornhole tournament at the city park beforehand. 

The 14-year-old’s condition requires her to be on dialysis and ultimately get a kidney transplant. 

In conjunction with the Paso Robles Police Association, volunteers hoped to raise enough money to help with the treatment. 

Organizers are encouraging the community to come out and play a round of cornhole to help.

If you are not a cornhole player, that’s okay," said Eric Azervand, Paso Robles Police Officers Association President. "I think anybody can play cornhole. and if it’s still not your thing, we will absolutely take volunteers to help us run the event or just come out and watch and enjoy the music and watch people play and have a good time.

The tournament is Aug. 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Paso Robles.

You can find the fundraiser here. So far, more than $22,000 have been raised.
