HIGHLAND PARK, Ill. (WLS) -- A new fundraiser is planned for Cooper Roberts, the 8-year-old boy paralyzed in the deadly Highland Park mass shooting.
The family of the young boy said he still has an IV drip and is mostly on a liquid diet because of nausea.
It has been over a month since a shooter opened fire at the community's 4th of July parade, killing seven people and wounding several others, including Cooper Roberts. He is making a slow physical recovery, his family said.
Now, Whiskey River Bar and Grill in Glenview is hosting a fundraiser to help the family.
The event will be held on October 16.
The family's GoFundMe can also be found here.
