MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH)-- Folks in Milford got together to help a family whose child was hit by a car back in April.
That child's name is Corey Gordon and he's just two-years-old.
Community members came together Sunday night to put on an event "Bowling For Corey."
"We are raising a reward for the person who hit my son, so hopefully someone will come forward and let us know some kind of information," said Erica Parmlee, Corey's mother.
It's been a tough year for the mother of two. Parmlee's son was critically injured by a hit-and-run driver.
The 3-year-old was struck down by a car on Capitol Avenue in Bridgeport while clinging to his mother's hand. Parlmee says she will always remember that April day.
"We were getting out of my car and I was holding his hand and a car struck him, he slid underneath another car, which was horrible," Parmlee said. "I don't think I can ever forget that day."
The family started the Corey M. Gordon foundation to raise money for Corey's care and a reward for information leading to the capture and arrest of the person responsible for hitting the child.
"They haven't gotten any new leads and the leads that they did have were a bust," said Corey's grandfather Charles Jones.
"It's been a travesty with the whole thing that's been going on, so I wanted to come out and support the family help raise some money," said Olivia Goforth, family friend. "Add to the rewards and find who did this to Corey."
Family organized the fundraiser: Bowling for Corey at Milford Lanes.
"I'm here to support him," said Corey's cousin Terrance Moore. "I want him to look back at this as a thankful thing for him. I hope he will do better and I love him."
Corey is out of the hospital, but it will take time and lots of therapy for him to bounce back.
"He goes to therapy three to four times a week, sometimes twice a day, speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy," said Jones.
"He's been through a lot," said Oscar Moore. "And hopefully he will look at this and only remember all the love everyone's been outpouring during this time of need."
