MOYHU woman Mandi McDonald is "soldiering on" in her recovery after being moved from intensive care at Melbourne's The Alfred Hospital.
Her injuries included two broken legs and internal damage.
The McDonald family remains unclear when Mandi will be released from hospital given the seriousness of her injuries.
Family friend Anita Cook, who owns Moyhu's Ineeta Cafe where Mandi worked, said the community was still coming to terms with the incident.
"It's obviously been a big shock," Ms Cook said.
"Everyone knows the story and as soon as you ask for help or a donation they say: 'what can I do'.
"It's been just overwhelming.
"We are lucky to live in such a beautiful community where everyone has each other's back."
A monster goods and services auction will be held at Moyhu Hotel on Sunday to raise funds for Mandi and her children, Jemma and Ethan.
More than 350 tickets have already been sold with organisers hoping the number will nudge 500 in the next 24 hours.
People will be travelling from throughout the region to attend the fundraiser.
Over 120 items will be auctioned including a $2800 helicopter ride as well as tradies donating their labour.
"We have been absolutely blown away by the support to be perfectly honest," Ms Cook said.
"It's probably the biggest thing Moyhu has seen fundraising wise and will see for some time and it just goes to show the impact it has had on the community.
"It's not just Moyhu, it's Wangaratta and the surrounding areas as well.
"Everyone knows the story and they want to help."
With Paul dying in the attack, Ms Cook said it was important the fundraising was ongoing.
"Our priority is when Mandi comes home, whenever that may be, she and her family will be looked after," she said.
"That's been our focus.
"Whatever amount we make on Sunday will be amazing.
"Mandi has a big recovery period ahead of her given the extent of the injuries so we need to keep it going."
Tickets and travel inquiries for Sunday can be made with Ms Cook on 0459 200 075.
There will be food, beverages and live music at the event from 12pm with the auction starting at 2.30pm.
