Family and friends of Joe Shoop hosted a fundraiser called "Shoopstock" this weekend in Kirksville.

Shoop was severely injured in an accident in August 2018.

The community wanted to help his recovery by hosting this event.

It consisted of a dinner, live auction and performances by four local bands.

“"We wanted to just go above a step or two beyond some of the normal fundraisers that you see around here, which is great but we wanted more of a music festival so that's what we have here," said Kyle Caraway.

All proceeds from this event will go towards Shoop’s medical expenses.
