LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Support continues to flow for a toddler battling leukemia  as crowds of people packed into Jim Porter's Good Time Emporium Monday night for a benefit concert.

Three-year-old Addie Roberts didn't make it out last night but hundreds of others included her family, friends, and some complete strangers.

Fifteen bands, and dozens of businesses donated services and auction items for the event, all the proceeds of which go to the “Addie’s Army” charity.

Addie’s Army is becoming a household name across Kentuckiana after an accused scammer stole from the fund when he promised the toddler’s family a benefit concert but instead allegedly pocketed the money.

According to event page for Addie’s Army 11k was raised last night.
