While Hannah, wearing yellow sunglasses, did not stop and speak to the press, her father, Brett Anderson, told reporters outside the fundraiser gathering place, the Boll Weevil restaurant in Lakeside, Calif. did.
"This is a small community that we are a part of, and the community came together putting on this great fundraiser for Hannah and hopefully for her future and healing," he said, reports CNN.
Brett Anderson also thanked local residents, family and friends, the media and law authorities, as well as the horseback riders whose sighting and phone tip to authorities led to DiMaggio and Hannah's being found.

It was his tip that ultimately led the FBI to the campsite where James DiMaggio was killed and Hannah Anderson rescued on Saturday.
Recalling how he first alerted state police after his group, on horseback, encountered DiMaggio and Anderson in rugged backcountry on Wednesday, Mark John, a retired Gem County, Idaho, sheriff, conceded it was his wife who intuited that the girl might be in trouble.
"You know, when we were on the lake, my wife wanted to talk to the girl … she felt something might be wrong, and I said, 'No, it might be a lovers' quarrel,' " John told reporters on Sunday.
He and his wife noted that, as they rode away from seeing the couple, Hannah said aloud to herself, "Looks like we're in real trouble now."

A massive search entered a sixth day Friday for a man suspected of abducting a 16-year-old family friend as police warned he may have abandoned his car while on the run and rigged it with explosives.
James Lee DiMaggio, 40, may have had an "unusual infatuation" with the missing girl, Hannah Anderson, said San Diego County Sheriff's Capt. Duncan Fraser.
"That is kind of a working theory, that it may be something of a motivator," Fraser said Thursday.
On Sunday night, authorities found the body of Hannah's mother – 44-year-old Christina Anderson – when they extinguished flames at DiMaggio's rural home. A child's body also was discovered as they sifted through rubble in Boulevard, a tiny town 65 miles east of San Diego.
