The Schuylkill County community comes together to raise money for a friend battling cancer.

Friends of Rick Goho gathered at the Charter Academy School in Andreas Saturday to host a car show fundraiser with a basket raffle and 50-50. Goho has been battling colon cancer and medical bills have piled up. Organizers say they wanted to help the Tamaqua resident with a car show because he's a big car guy.

"Rick was having some financial rough times paying for treatments so they wanted to make sure that he was able to get everything taken care of."

Organizers say Goho is an all around great guy and hope the money raised will relieve some of his financial stress while he recovers from treatment and surgery.
