Aces on 80 Bar and Grill in Phenix City is hosting a big event next month with the hopes of raising funds for Wyatt Burnette, a seven-year-old boy who is in need of open heart surgery.

Wyatt has had a life far different than most kids. Born with nine heart defects, Wyatt has had to have multiple open heart surgeries in an attempt to keep him healthy. Now, he is in need of yet another expensive procedure.
