Norcross is hosting a fundraising event for Aimee Copeland called "Art for Aimee" on Sept. 29.
Aimee Copeland is the 24-year-old Snellville resident who lost her left leg, right foot and both hands as a result of a rare, flesh-eating bacteria contracted following a zip-line accident. She was diagnosed with the condition in May, and she came home last weekend from her long stay in the hospital.
The event will take place Sept. 29 at 6 p.m. at the Norcross Welcome Center and Museum, and will showcase the artwork from Gwinnett artist Vicki A. Johnson.
Johnson is donating a portion of her art sales from the evening to Copeland, and all proceeds collected from the event will be donated to the Aimee Copeland Fund.
