Fundraiser benefit for Adam Eilers Saturday

Posted:
GUTTENBERG (KWWL) -

Family and friends of an injured Iowa soldier are planning a fundraiser this weekend to help cover medical costs.

Corporal Adam Eilers, of Garber, is one of several Iowa soldiers recovering from an IED attack in Afghanistan.

The 23-year-old was with Andrew Zimmerman of Camanche, and Caleb Redell of Erie, Illinois when they were all injured back in February.

The benefit for Eilers is Saturday at the Lakeside Ballroom in Guttenberg.  It starts at 4:00 p.m.

There's also an auction starting at 6:00 p.m. including items like tickets to this year's Hawkeye homecoming game.

Eilers is now being cared for at the VA Hospital in Minneapolis.  He was transferred there from Walter Reed last week.
