Workers at Quips Pub in Lancaster are expecting a full house Sunday, for a very special cause.

Family and friends have organized a fundraiser in support of 29-year-old Annika Horn, the victim of last Sunday's brutal stabbing. Police say a man broke into her home and stabbed her 26 times in the neck, arms and other parts of her body. She remains in critical condition at a local hospital.

Horn's boyfriend works at Quips and so far, about 40 thousand dollars has been raised to support Horn. Friends and co-workers hope tomorrow's fundraiser will help even more.

"To have such a horrible thing happen and have you feel you have no faith in humanity and then the city to rally around her and her family and take care of them in a financial sense so that they can concentrate on caring for her, would be the biggest gift we can give to them," said Leah Margerum, Quips manager and Horn's friend.

The event starts at 5 p.m. Tickets are 25 dollars -- complete with food, drinks and live entertainment. If you can't attend but would like to donate, you can do so by clicking http://www.gofundme.com/heartsforani
