After Kara McGee, 16, and Justin McGee, 11, were struck by a car on El Camino Real in early August, Millbrae residents have continued to support the family as they recover.
Mills High School PTO sponsored a pasta dinner event on Sept. 7, which was also the school's Back to School Night.
Karen Morgan, a PTO member and an organizer of the event, said that it was a success, selling 300 tickets and raising over $4,100 for the family. Lucky's, Walgreens, Raymond's and Ray Mecado made donations to the event to keep the costs low, and tickets were sold in advance tickets for $7 and at the door for $10.
Students from the school's Culinary Arts program served the dinner.
On Sept. 7, Millbrae American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) launched its opening night for the fall season in collaboration with the Millbrae Lions Club to raise funds for the McGee family.
Natalie Eposto, who helped organize the event, said that over 800 people attended. The Lions Club sold hotdogs, chips and a drink for $5 to raise $3,864.
"It was great to see the community come together to help a family in need," Eposto said.
Heidi Lindström-Gomez and Betsy Shader also organized a food drive for the McGees. Dozens of community members have signed up to cook a meal for the family, and last Friday the drive was extended and is still accepting volunteers.
