Sonora auctioneer David L. Knight is not lacking for friends.
An outpouring of support for Knight, who suffered a series of debilitating strokes in September, reaped $20,000 over the weekend during a fundraiser held at Upton Community Center. Paralyzed from the neck down, Knight has been in medical care since suffering the strokes.
The event included a chili supper and an auction, where a 1930s antique bedroom suite, old coins, TVs and cakes were up for bid. Local businesses also donated items, such as gift certificates.
