Ella's miracle fundraising event

RALEIGH They gathered for Ella's miracle fundraising event.

The fundraiser at Marbles Kids Museum is named for fiver-year-old Ella Newmiller.

The 5-year-old found out in late April she has an inoperable brain tumor.

Ella's family appreciates all they've received in recent weeks.

Renae Newmiller, Ella's mother offered this at the fundraiser, "We want to thank everybody so much for your prayers and your support. We just feel embraced by everybody's outpouring of prayer and support and we just love it so thank you."

A painting Ella drew was the centerpiece of a silent auction. The money raised at Thursday night's event will go toward Ella's Miracle Fund and children's brain tumor research.
