As a result of the fundraiser, 9 Group raised approximately $1,250 and also collected nearly $700 in cash from guests. Hernandez was seen hanging out poolside for a short while and enjoyed the atmosphere and time with friends in the shade. DJ Stellar and DJ SHR3D (who attended high school with Hernandez) volunteered their time and talent by spinning their beats on the turntables.
Hernandez, 26, had 80 percent of his body burned in a car explosion in 2009 and lost both legs due to infection. He recently was able to return home after spending more than a year in the hospital without the aid of medical insurance to help pay costs.
