    NORCROSS, Ga. - A fundraiser was held Saturday for a local student receiving national attention for her valiant fight against a rare flesh-eating bacteria.

    Art for Aimee kicked off at 6 p.m. at the Norcross Welcome Center & Museum.

    Organizers said the event celebrates Aimee Copeland's passion for life by showcasing the fine arts work of Vicki A. Johnson. A portion of her art sales will help Copeland with her mounting medical expenses, organizers said.

    Copeland lost multiple limbs after contracting necrotizing fasciitis when she fell during a homemade zip line accident in May.
