The Fondue Factory in Morgantown hosted a fundraiser Wednesday evening for the family of Ryan Diviney.

Diviney has been in a coma since 2009 when a group of men beat him. A group of WVU Public Relation students suggested the fundraiser.

Cameron Vagheei said his class is the last class that was at WVU when the attack happened.

"Morgantown's a great city. It's fun, it's outgoing. We have a great sports program, great university, but with that comes times that gets out of hand and I hope for the best that, you know future classes can learn from past classes mistakes, " said Vagheei.

Students said it means a lot that people care and they want to help spread awareness for the Diviney family.
