Long Beach restaurant holds benefit for Myers children

Posted: Updated:
LONG BEACH, MS (WLOX) -

Trax Bar and Grill held a benefit for Tyler and Katelyn Myers on Sunday. The two children were severely burned in an accident in their Long Beach home in November and their family has no health insurance.

"It's all for the Myers kids. We realize their medical expenses are totally exorbitant. We just want to do our little part to help them out. Whatever little bit we could," an organizer said.

The Long Beach restaurant employees even donated their time to work during the benefit.

"I would suggest that everybody do anything they could. Not only come support us tonight for what this bar is doing, but do it down the road too. For the next few months or next year or two because this family is going to need help all along the way," an organizer said.

All proceeds from the fish plates were given to the Myers family. They are at a pediatric burn facility in Georgia where they will be treated for the next two to five months.
