AUSTELL, Ga. -

East West Church and the Austell Chick-fil-A will host a fundraiser for Tripp Halstead on Thursday night. 

From 5-8 p.m., 20 percent of all proceeds from sales at the Chick-fil-A located at 3951 Austell Road will go toward Tripp's medical expenses.  Patrons who wish to make donations are asked to make their checks payable to The Halstead Family. 

Tripp was critically injured when a tree branch fell on him in October.  He was hospitalized for months following the accident, and is currently undergoing rehab. 

A portion of the proceeds raised in Thursday's fundraiser will go towards Mike Patterson, the Good Samaritan who was paralyzed diving into a creek to save a 4-year-old girl.
