LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – The Charlie Wilson jingle can be heard over the radio and television promoting his many different home appliances.

The popular store didn’t have a huge sale going on at its downtown Louisville location Saturday but held an auction for one of their own.

One of Charlie Wilson’s loyal employees, James Frazier, is dealing with his 17-year-old daughter Kirsten’s bout with leukemia.

“In 2012 she was diagnosed with leukemia. Then we beat leukemia and then [the] beginning of this year, she was diagnosed with MDS which is a blood disease from taking the chemo,” Frazier said.

The store hosted an auction to help the Frazier family with growing medical bills.

“Since Jay is a part of our family, we want to make sure he gets taken care of. And that’s really what today is all about – taking care of all of our family by delivering appliances and working for us,” manager Joe Thompson said.

Frazier’s daughter is scheduled to receive a bone marrow transplant from her younger sister within the next two weeks. Doctors have confirmed that she is a match.

For anyone wanting to make a donation for this cause, they can visit Charlie Wilson's Dixie Appliance located at 202 East Market Street.
