    A crowdfunding site launched for award-winning Chef Eli Kulp, who sustained severe injuries during the Amtrak derailment last month, reached — and went beyond — its original financial goal.

    The Kulp Family Medical Fund has raised more than $25,500 from nearly 300 people in only 18 days. The original goal was set at $25,000 by family friend Kelly Mawn Silkworth and Jessica Zayac, who launched the page through website GoFundMe.
