HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — One Huntsville group adds new meaning to fall carnivals. The 'Isaiah 41:10 Foundation' hosted its second annual 'Carnival of Giving'.

Families participated in fun games while in their vehicles at Whitesburg Christian Academy.

The organization was founded by the Harmon family after Sam Harmon, 9, was diagnosed with Leukemia a few days before Christmas in 2015. He died the next year in September. 

Organizers say proceeds will go to families in need in North Alabama and the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

"I think in the last thirty, forty years there's only been a handful of drugs specifically for pediatric cancer, so we're hoping that funds that we raised will go toward research so that is changed," says Isaiah 41:10 Foundation Founder & President Christie Harmon.

Last year the carnival raised about $65,000. Organizers will continue the carnival's silent auction until tomorrow at 8 p.m.
