Justin Crawford and Navaeh Sheets were killed when the car they were riding in crashed into a tree along East Maiden Street in South Strabane Twp.

The event was organized by the South Strabane Twp. Fire Department.

“When we got back from the accident scene, it was pretty apparent that multiple members of our department had some type of connection to one of the families. That made it a little more personal,” Fire Chief Jordan Cramer said.

Chief Cramer told Channel 11 businesses from all over the area pitched in to help. There was Bingo, food and a silent auction to help raise money for funeral expenses.
