A Mountain City family set a goal of $25,000 to get four-year-old Kourtnee Dawne Peters a service dog.

The Tomahawk reports Peters has Optic Nerve Hypoplasia and autism, so she struggles with sensory overload, social anxiety, trouble communicating, motor difficulties, and noise sensitivity every day.

On Friday, July 19th at the Fish Springs Marina in Hampton from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m., the family will host a fundraiser for their daughter.
