At Hot Pie Pizza in Royal Palm Beach, fundraising nights are nothing new.
Thursday night was a little different, however.
That's because it was a chance for Dave Stewart to say what he's been waiting weeks to say in person — Thank You.
"I didn't know what to think. I've never seen anything like this," he says.
Dave has a lot to be thankful for.
Back in May Dave, who is battling stage four throat cancer, wandered to a Loxahatchee man's doorstep, disoriented with no home to go to.
"I was walking around barefoot, bleeding and all cut up," he says.
The fundraiser Thursday night raised almost $3,000 for Dave.
Dave says he has a way to go in his battle with cancer.
However, he says has every intention of "kicking cancer's butt."
With all the people rooting for him now, he says there's no way he can lose.
