The shy smile on two-year-old Allison Ortiz face captivates from the donation can where her image is pasted.
The toddler died last Thursday in the driveway of her Maynardville home when a woman backing out ran her over.
Community members are calling it a tragic accident, and as of last week THP says no charges where filed against the woman.
Now, fundraiser organizer Kristie Nipper says those touched by the tragedy want to help the child's family pay to bury the child in Mexico.
Nipper says that's where Allison Ortiz's grandfather is buried.
"God just placed it on my heart to help them," says Nipper.
She says she also has a two year old daughter who had been a playmate of Allison's in the past.
"I just can't imagine losing my baby."
The event was held at Union County High School and included a silent auction, dance performances, a bounce house, and yard sale.
Before the final tally, Nipper said she was hoping to raise between $2,000-$3,000.
They came in with a total of $3,600.
Nipper says when the accident first happened some were quick to judge.
"People were quick to point a finger," says Nipper. "This was a good family."
As a mother of three, she says she knows how difficult it is to always be aware of your children's whereabouts.
"It could happen to anybody. A child can just get away from you like that," she says, snapping her fingers.
But she says Sunday's event shows the family that many support them.
10News reached out to the child's family. Though they couldn't attend Sunday's event, Allison's father says they are grateful for the help.
Nipper says the family estimates the cost of burying Allison's remains in Mexico to be around $10,000.
