More than 800 friends and family enjoyed a pancake supper and bid on silent auction items to raise over $20,000 for the family of Hatcher Davis on Saturday at Forsyth UMC. “It overwhelms me,” said Hatcher’s mom, Pam Davis. “I can’t begin to thank everyone that helped in front and behind the scenes. It was above and beyond our expectations!” Hatcher, 17, suffers from muscular dystrophy and is under hospice care. But he was able to come by the church long enough to adopt a puppy that was set to be auctioned off. Hatcher named the dog “Roxy”. Organizers Joy Sanders and Cathy Stevick thanked all the volunteers who cooked pancakes, sausage and bacon or donated auction items. Funds raised will help the family cover Hatcher’s mounting medical bills. “Our family is definitely loved and you all are just as loved right back,” Davis wrote on her Facebook page. “I love my community and my tribe. Thank you all for making us feel so loved and I hope you all know how much we love you.”
