On Tuesday June 19, one family was changed forever. The Bova Family of Archdale, NC were on a family vacation, driving in Utah, when they were hit head on by another vehicle. Tyrone (47), Holly Jo (43) and Haden (11) all died as a result of this accident, leaving behind Tyler (17) in extremely critical condition.
Since the accident, Tyler has undergone numerous surgeries and while still in critical condition is doing well. He is #builttylertough. The Grown Ups Benefit decided to put together an event to help Tyler with the long road to recovery.
The event will be on Friday, July 13th, from 5pm until the last person leaves. There will be food, music and fellowship. There will also be a cornhole tournament ($25 per two man team prior to the event, $30 day of), A live auction with incredible items that are being donated, including Cruises, a possible car, a Hilton Head golf package. There will also be raffles, bounce houses, and much more. All proceeds go to a fund set up on Tyler’s behalf. You can also stop by the message station and record a brief encouraging word for Tyler.
Some NFL teams are even jumping in to help.

The Grown Ups Benefit are a Christian based organization providing hope, love, and funds for families in our own community that are experiencing financial hardship brought on by a health crisis. We also provide Scholarships to deserving seniors from area high schools and fund Play it Forward, a program that provides sporting equipment and covers various fees for those families in which this would prove to be a hardship. We organize many events that enable people to live out our motto, Helping People Help Others.
